- May 31 - King Library Opens at 1:00 PM
Join us as we get into the mood for Halloween! Robyn Of Kids Creative Adventures will be at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library on Saturday, October 1 at 3:00PM teaching kids how to create their own Halloween cartoons. We will furnish all the supplies, children will bring their fantastic imaginations and creativity. Who knows what ghoulish things will be created? This workshop is limited to the first 25 children. If you can't make it to the workshop San Jose Public Library has many books on cartooning on many different subjects; here are just a few you might enjoy:
I read The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian while on a visit to Boston and I found that I could not take a break from it! Junior, a disabled Native American boy, finds the courage within himself to break away from tradition. His tale is truly inspiring for teens who find themselves in a horrible situation.
Despite enduring tremendous personal tragedies, Junior never gives up on himself. His saving grace is his art, which is on display throughout the book.
If you like uplifting stories, make sure that you read this book!
