October Art Show – Larry Hills

After teaching physics for 39 years and never taking an art class in high school or college, Richmond resident Larry Hills discovered a passion for landscape painting and a talent he never knew he possessed. Landscape painting is a natural fit with his lifelong interest in nature and spending time outdoors.  For the past two summers he has painted plein air, gradually overcoming his self-consciousness about other people seeing him work. Locals will recognize many of the scenes depicted in the pieces hanging at the library during the month of October.

Fall Youth Programs Our regularly scheduled youth programs will resume after Labor Day.  Program details are below. Weekly youth programs at the Library run September – May and follow the MMUUSD schedule for vacation days and weather closure days.

Baby Laptime This short, active storytime is for our youngest little book lovers and their grown ups. We’ll look at picture books, sing simple songs, do some rhyming and bouncing and sometimes get out the shakers and scarves. Designed for infants and early toddlers.  Join us on Mondays at 10:30 am.

Playgroup with Stories and Songs The good times kick off with songs and shakers around the colorful alphabet rug.  Next up is storytime and snacks (bring your own). Then, the toys and art supplies come out for free play and crafts. Co-sponsored by the Lund Center. Kids from infant – five and their grown ups are invited to join us in the commnity room on Wednesdays from 10 am – noon.

Preschool Storytime This special storytime is for children ages 3 – 5.  We will share picture books, songs, activities and games with a focus on the six pre-reading skills that form a child’s early literacy experience and help set them up for a lifelong love of books and reading. Join us on Fridays at 10:30 am.
