Your local library is the place to be this spring break!
In addition to all of the regular story times, crafts, Lego building, and technology labs that many of our branch libraries host each week, we are bringing Book-It Repertory Theatre of Seattle to give special live performances at several libraries and our technology and STEM staff will host a number of fun coding clinics.
Book-It Repertory Theatre
Book-It Repertory Theatre of Seattle will bring the book Goin’ Someplace Special to life at nine of our libraries while school is out for spring break. The popular children’s book is about a young African American girl growing up in the segregated South of the 1950s and the challenges she faces going to the public library by herself. Along the way, she rides a bus, navigates busy city streets, encounters a friendly woman tending a church garden, and eventually reaches the library where everyone is welcome.
