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.

April 2018 Calendar – Alpine Library

Happy April, everyone! We have exciting news at the library this month! We are proud to announce that the Alpine Library is selected to host Native Voices: Native Peoples’ Concepts of Health and Illness, a traveling exhibition created by the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM). Native Voices was displayed at the NLM headquarters in Bethesda, Maryland, from 2011 to 2015. Through a partnership with the American Library Association (ALA), the exhibition is now traveling to libraries throughout the United States, and will be on display at the Alpine Library throughout the month of April.  We are thrilled to bring the exhibition to our community and to hopefully broaden people’s perspectives about this fascinating topic.

The Alpine Library was chosen to host the exhibition through a competitive application process; as part of the award, we received a small grant to host a series of public programs, plus additional funding from the Alpine Library Friends Association. These will include a showing of Our People. Our Culture. Our History, a documentary about the Sycuan band of the Kumeyaay Nation, with a panel discussion afterwards with tribal members, (April 19 at 6 pm) and a talk by Kenneth Cohen, author of Honoring the Medicine: the Essential Guide to Native American Healing (April 26 at 6 pm). The San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum will also bring their mobile exhibit on Kumeyaay culture for kids to explore (April 13, 3:30 to 4 pm).

The exhibit will kick off at 6 pm on April 5 at the Alpine Library with an unveiling of the exhibition. We will be honored to host Chairwoman Gwendolyn Parada of  the La Posta Band of Mission Indians and the Southern Indian Health Council, and Secretary Charlene Worrell of the Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation, who will provide opening remarks, as well as a performance by Kumeyaay bird singers H. Paul “Junior” Cuero and Ral Christman. We hope you can join us as we introduce this exciting educational exhibit to our community. To learn more and view content from the exhibition, visit http://www.nlm.nih.gov/nativevoices.
