The books I am reading aloud and any other class visit activities will be posted each week on this website, under the Weekly Readalouds tab.
The Manhattan Beach branch of the County of Los Angeles Public Library has sent out its newsletter of upcoming events. Take a look--there are a lot of great programs for all ages.
Tickets are now available for Dav Pilkey's appearance at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center on October 16! Tickets include a signed copy of the new Dog Man book, Lord of the Fleas. The event is likely to sell out, so if you are interested, I encourage you to get your tickets right away.
Inspired by Dav Pilkey's visit, Pennekamp will hold a drive for ... underpants! Yes, underpants are amusing, and Dav Pilkey's Captain Underpants books are very amusing, but there's a serious side to underpants: fresh underwear and socks are among the items most needed by homeless men, women, and children. From October 1 to 12, the Pennekamp Library will be collecting new, unopened packages of underwear and socks to be donated to a service provider for homeless people in Los Angeles County. Everyone who donates will be entered in a raffle to win two tickets to Dav Pilkey's appearance on October 16 at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center! The winner will be announced on Friday, October 12. Please donate generously to our drive, and who knows, maybe you'll win the raffle!
