In September 1850, California became a state. Among other things, it is famous for its beaches, vineyards and mountains. Or is it really famous for earthquakes, Donner Pass and Alcatraz? Or maybe sea lions in San Francisco and sea otters in Monterey.

Pajama Story Time will continue through the fall! To accommodate children who will be going to bed earlier to wake up for school, the program will begin at 7 p.m. on Wednesday evenings, instead of 7:3 0 p.m., starting in September.
Children may wear their pajamas and/or bring a favorite stuffed animal to Pajama Story Time. The program is for infants to six-year-olds.
We are looking forward to reading bedtime stories with you!

On Wednesday, August 24, we had a great party at the Petworth Library.
We celebrated the children, all the books they read over the summer, and going back to school. We made back-to-school magnets, candy sushi, and played freeze dance. Every child was able to choose a prize from the treasure chest. Make sure to keep an eye on this page for the next party!
