Besides the array of interesting and colorful characters who parade through the library doors, there are a variety of fun and exciting organized activities to keep you entertained.
For the adolescent crowd, there’s the La Verne Library Video Gaming Club and the Anime and Manga Club. The Video Gaming Club is for all ages and meets every Monday at 4 p.m. The library hosts several events, one if which has been a Halo 3 tournament. The Anime and Manga Club discusses Japanese comic books and artistic styles, meeting every Saturday from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.
A preschool and toddler storytime, sung with enthusiasm by my coworkers, is held every Friday at 12 p.m. This storytime is immediately followed by a fun craft. Because there are many adults and older children who enjoy the storytime and following craft, the library also offers a storytime and art activity for all ages every Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. Another popular event is the family movie showings offered every Saturday at 2 p.m.
Besides the several annual events offered, like the Summer Reading Program and the Haunted House held every October, the library also offers free wi-fi internet access for personal computers and in-library internet access as well.
So you see, the library is not just a place to get books. We have music, movies, clubs, readings and crafts as well. Stop by when you get a chance. It is a pretty happening place, believe me.
