The Jose Cisneros Branch Library celebrated Mother’s Day on May 8th with a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. Attendees put on their fanciest clothing and came to the library to celebrate the special women in their lives.
Refreshments were served and attendees created paper hats out of newspaper and tissue paper. They also created corsages for their moms.
On Saturday, May 2, the Jose Cisneros Cielo Vista Branch Library kicked off Zombie Awareness Month in style by dedicating a day to the walking dead. Visitors enjoyed a zombie movie marathon and a kids’ costume contest.
Three winners shambled off with Zombie Apocalypse Kits for their creepiest zombie costumes.
Throughout the month of May, we’ll display a wide array of zombie books, graphic novels, and movies, which are all available for check out!
