We are pleased to report that the Alum Rock teensReachers were one of five honorees selected as this year's District 5 Heroes! All the heroes were presented with plaques and certificates from State Senator Beall and State Assemblymember Nora Campos. Supervisor Cindy Chavez and mayor-elect Sam Liccardo were on hand to congratulate and take photos with the honorees. The event took place the evening of November 19 at the Alum Rock Library. Some of the activities teensReach has been involved in include: volunteering at the Summer Reading Challenge registration table, helping out at the Library's book sales, reading to children in the Reading Buddies program, helping with library craft programs and being active contributors to the Library's annual Birthday, Halloween and Santa celebrations. These teens use their artistic and organizational skills to create carnival games including activities, prizes, and face painting. Besides the hours involved in planning and implementing programs, most impressive is their welcoming and inclusive attitude with the Alum Rock community participating in library programs. These teens, individually and as a group, represent excellent role models for our community.
