Alpine Library Calendar of Free Events – May 2018

Greetings, everyone!  We have been enjoying the beautiful weather this month, and the library patio is an especially nice place to enjoy it from!

Library events LogoSome news items this month: The “new” library building is turning 2 this month! It’s hard to believe it’s been that long already, but we still love working here and being part of the community.  To celebrate, we’re having a party on Saturday May 19 at 2 pm, featuring a performance by the Alpine Chorale!

We said goodbye to our youth services librarian, Jodi dela Pena–she has accepted a promotion at another location.  We will miss her, but.. We are excited to welcome our NEW youth services librarian, Loretta Deaver! Loretta has a variety of experience, including working at the San Diego Museum of Art’s library, but she comes to us more recently from the Valley Center branch. She says she is looking forward to working “in the trees” which we have both outside and inside here at the Alpine branch! Grace, one of our technicians, also retired this month after 18 years with the library.  We will miss her too, but she is already busy traveling and preparing for a new grandchild, so we wish her well!

A few scheduling notes: we are moving Rockin’ Recess to Monday afternoons, and STEAM Power Hour is swapping to Tuesdays.  Both are at 3:30 PM. Also, Lunch Break Pilates and Restorative Stretch will be on hiatus in May, but they will return in June.
