Lafayette Library and Learning Center
The turn out for Saturday’s class, Plan(t) Ahead, was a great! Kids and parents learned that it takes a little planning to grow things. We look forward to seeing pictures of their pumpkins as they grow in these months leading up to Halloween.
A big THANK YOU goes out to Dena Hollowood of the Lafayette Library for coming out for this special storytime and activity.
Ask kids what they see in the recycling bin and most of them will see a bin of potential. The Lafayette Community Garden and Outdoor Learning Center will be unleashing this potential at the Lafayette Library with upcyclables generously donated from Republic Services on Saturday, April 16. Bring your children to the Arts & Sciences Room from 1:00PM to 2:00PM and watch them — and help if they want you to — bring new life to…well…”trash.”
Have a read about the Sip of Soup event at the Lafayette Library tomorrow (Wednesday, January 14) in Lou Fancher’s article, “Lafayette: Garden gets exposure through ‘Soup Opera’” in the Contra Costa Times. Says Fancher:
“Soup Opera” …will feature Senior Library Manager Vickie Sciacca (narrator), the library’s Orlando Guzman (soup eater), garden director Janet Thomas (chef), piano teacher Xiomara Di Maio (United States president), Lafayette police Chief Eric Christensen (chief of police) and Stanley Middle School music teacher Bob Athayde (waiter).
Join us on Wednesday, 12:00-1:30PM at the Lafayette Library and Learning Center (open space), 3491 Mt. Diablo Blvd., Lafayette, CA for a not-to-be-missed performance of “A Soup Opera” and a Sip of Soup.

Wednesday, January 14, 2014 | 12:00 to 1:30PM
In partnership with the Lafayette Library and Learning Center, Garden members, the Library staff and mother/daughter teams from National Charity League will be serving soup in the lobby of the library on Wednesday, January 14, 2014 from 12:00pm and 1:30pm.
Special guests, Lafayette mayor Don Tatzin, Stanley Middle School’s Bob Athayde and piano teacher Xiomara Di Maio, will act out scenes from the book “The Soup Opera,” a story about a man, a bowl of soup, and the man’s comically frustrating quest to eat that soup.
All ages; no reservations necessary.
Lobby, Lafayette Library and Learning Center, 3491 Mt. Diablo Blvd, Lafayette, CA, 94549.
Come join the fun at noon; a repeat performance will take place at 1:00pm.
