Find What You're Looking For
A new poetry program at the Claremont Branch of the Berkeley Public Library features you and what you like on the second Thursday of each month from 6:30 pm-7:50 pm starting October 9th, 2014. Bring in a favorite poem, and, if you write poetry, bring one of your own too. We will be sharing poems in a reading circle. Discover new poets, hear new voices and ways of working the same old world into new words. So come, participate in the friendly atmosphere, share a ready ear, read aloud (or recite), and let the words do their weave and swing and work.
Baby Bounce & Toddler Tales includes stories, songs, lap-bounces and tickles for babies and toddlers 6 mos-35 mos and is usually held the first three Saturdays of every month at 10:15 a.m (there will be a special library-themed Family Story Time on Saturday, September 13th at 10:15).
Please join us for a special event at Northbrae Community Church (941 the Alameda, Berkeley, CA 94707) as Civil Rights Movement champion Congressman John Lewis (D GA-5) shares insights from the second installment of his three-part graphic autobiography, March. March chronicles Lewis' lifelong struggle -- from an Alabama sharecropper's farm to a segregated schoolroom to the 1963 March on Washington to the halls of Congress -- for civil rights and justice.
