  • Back in the Days...: California Room Yearbook Collectionshelf of yearbooks in the California Room

    Each week, hundreds of families from across the state flocked to San Jose’s Lowrider Culture Exhibition. A significant portion of these pilgrims are former San Jose residents. Surprisingly, many are visiting the California Room and the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library for the first time! Those returning to San Jose from across the state seem naturally drawn to our High School Yearbook collection. In these volumes, they can glimpse photos of family and friends from long (or not so long) ago.

  • D.I.Y.: T-Shirt Quiltsstack of colorful folded t-shirts

    Last year, I watched a public television show where the host was visiting a t-shirt quilt making company that got a zero waste rating.  People would send in their t-shirt for a fee to be made into a quilt.  The left over fabric because with any sewing project there is always leftover fabric is recycled into a type of tanbark for children's playgrounds. I thought to myself I could make a t-shirt quilt.  During this year's spring cleaning, I discovered that I had three drawers full of t-shirts that I don't wear that I could easily up-cycle into a quilt.
