Library to sponsor kids' programs this weekend

Free events taking place at library, Amador Theater

by Jeb Bing

The Pleasanton Public Library will host two special children's programs this weekend, one at the library and another at Amador Theater.

On Saturday, Doug Nolan of Rock Steady Juggling brings a lively mix of environmental education, juggling, comedy and audience participation with his "Eco-Tainment" show. Participants will learn about reducing, reusing, recycling, water conservation and pollution prevention.

No registration is required for this 45-minute program, which is best suited for children 5 and older and takes place in the library's large meeting room. The performance begins at 2 p.m., with free tickets distributed at the Children's Desk 30 minutes prior to the show. Doors will close once the program begins.

Then on Sunday, the award-winning children's music group Banana Slug String Band brings its rollicking, ecology-minded music to the Amador Theater. Slug songs range from rockin' boogies to gentle ballads, folk songs to reggae and rap. Music, theater, puppetry and audience participation make this free concert a perfect fit for all ages.

The one-hour concert begins at 1 p.m. at the theater, located at 1155 Santa Rita Rd. on the grounds of Amador Valley High School. Free parking is available.

Also, this summer's reading game, "Sherlock Bones and the Case of the Mysterious Library," is underway at the Pleasanton library. It's free and happening now through Aug. 3, and includes prizes, special events, crafts and movies.

For more information visit, or call the Children's Desk at 931-3400, ext. 3.
