Thursday: It's summer party time at Menlo Park Library

 

The Menlo Park Library will host the onset of the summer reading season with a free outdoor party, featuring music and snacks, from 6 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 11, on the lawn outside the library at 800 Alma St. in Menlo Park.

Derek Smith's Pankind Quartet will play Caribbean-style music, while Cafe Zoe provides snacks and beverages. Guests are invited to bring blankets or low lawn chairs to relax and enjoy the performance.

Library staff will be on hand to share information about the library's summer reading program, which will be launched on June 10 for children, teens and adults. The reading program will include games and prizes.

The June 11 party will include a cooking demonstration, puppetry, storytelling, music, poetry, and a wildlife presentation. There will also be balloon-twisting and free bottles of bubbles.

The festivities are sponsored by Friends of the Menlo Park Library and Cafe Zoe in Menlo Park.
