Happenings for Youth at Our Library

Welcome patrons and readers from our New Youth Services Librarian!

My name is Steven Torres-Roman, and I am the new Youth Services Librarian at the Rancho Bernardo Branch Library. Thank you for your warm welcome, and I look forward to serving you as part of the library staff.

In the coming months, we have some exciting programs and events for our younger patrons. For example, on February 13, we have the “Who Am I?” Game Book activity for preschoolers, where parents and children create their own book that serves as a game, a keepsake, and an outlet the children’s creativity. We also have a Japanese Kite Workshop on February 16 for children ages 8 and older; this activity will serve as a tiny window into Japanese culture, and give the children a sense of accomplishment, seeing their “do-it-yourself” kites flying high this spring season!

To accentuate our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) programming, we offer the Crazy 8s after-school math club for children grades 3 through 5, an eight-week series of activities designed to present mathematical concepts in a fun and interactive environment.

To round off this wonderful peek into coming programs, did you know that 2018 was the Year of the Dog? In that vein, we are offering Going to the Dogs, a quarterly combination of discussions and movie days featuring classic canine films that the whole family can enjoy!

And these programs are merely some highlights pulled from roster of daily programs that we offer the youth of Rancho Bernardo! As always, we are very thankful to the Friends of the Rancho Bernardo Library for their interest, time, and generosity, which allows for so many of these opportunities for our community.

And now if you’ll excuse me, I must begin preparing for the 2018 Summer Reading Program!

Come check out the library!

In the case of good books, the point is not how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you.
