Take two parts science, add one part magic, throw in a large dose of audience participation and you've got Xtreme Science Magic, a show offered at a number of San Jose Public Library branches during the month of March.

The educational and entertaining show will be at six additional locations this month including King, Evergreen, Berryessa, West Valley, Vineland, and Santa Teresa libraries.

On Thursday March 1, children and their families came to the Edenvale Branch Library to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday. One of the Edenvale Branch Library TeensReach members read Ten Apples up on Top, then Councilmember Ash Kalra read Cat in the Hat. After a fun reading of those two books, teens showed children how to make “Thing One” and “Thing Two” hats. Children, teens and families enjoyed delicious cake, apple juice and other delicious refreshments, provided by the Friends of the Edenvale Branch Library.
