On Monday, November 4, the Valente Branch Library re-opened its doors to the public. Join us for a ribbon-cutting, remarks, and reception as we reintroduce ourselves to the neighborhood on Wednesday, November 20. A welcome reception will take place from 11:00 – 12:30 pm. After-school fun activities are scheduled from 1:30 – 5:00 pm, beginning with a special STEAM storytelling event with Yumi Izuyama and Kendall Inglese. Join us to learn about penguins through the art of the Kamishibai.
The reopening of Valente creates more opportunities for exciting programming, including Saturday events. This month, patrons ages 5+ are invited to join Jay Mankita and his traveling maker space for Playful Engineers at Valente on Saturday, November 23 from 2:00 – 4:00 pm.
