Our Summer Programs

We are pleased to announce that our Youth Services summer program schedule has been posted on the Calendar of Events section of our Library website. We invite you to "Be Creative @ Your Library" this summer, and join us for lots of summer reading fun and activities. We'll be offering programs for all age levels, from Baby Lapsit for children under 12 months of age, to School Age Programs, for students who will be entering 1st through 6th grade.

Our teens, who will be entering 7th through 12th grade, have their own summer Teen Read program, "Express Yourself," and their own teen summer activities schedule, which is posted on the Teennet section of the Library website. Movies and special events, such as Wii games tournaments, are planned for teens.

Thanks to a generous grant from the Santa Clara City Library Foundation and Friends, we'll be offering family multicultural programs in the Central Park Pavilion at 7:00 p.m. on the following Monday nights:
  • June 22, PAMPA (Indian Classical Dance)

  • June 29, OKASAN & ME (Japanese Music)

  • July 6, FUEGO NUEVO (Aztec/Mexican Dancing)

  • July 13, SWIFT CLOUD (Native American Dance)

  • July 20, FIREBIRD YOUTH CHINESE ORCHESTRA (Chinese Classical Music)

  • July 27, JANETTA COLEMAN (African Music/Rhythm)

The summer fun begins on Saturday, June 6 with our Summer Reading Kickoff, from 1 to 4 p.m. just outside the Library's parkside entrance. Our featured performer will be SHORT ATTENTION SPAN CIRCUS, appearing on the outdoor stage at 2:00 p.m. Join us at this event and find out how to register online for our Summer Reading Program.

Watch our "Feature Friday" Youth Services blogs. We'll keep you up-to-date with all of our summer events. Wherever you are, we're only a click away
