Morning Story Time

at 10 a.m. on Fridays, lasts for about 30 minutes and includes stories, songs, finger plays, and a flannel board story. It is geared to infants through 2 years old. We also have a short play time afterwards where parents and caregivers are encouraged to stay awhile to color with their children and socialize with each other.

Preschool Story Time

is scheduled for Fridays at 11 a.m. and follows a similar format, but is geared toward the 2 - 5 age group. For Afternoon Story Time, at 4 p.m. on Tuesdays, Mr. Ted and Ms. Lana will entertain you with stories, songs and live music. Registration is not required. This story time is for children ages 3 to 5 p.m in the Community Room of the Carmel Valley Branch Library. The story time will last for 30 minutes.

Chess Club

will meet every Saturday from 12 p.m. – 2 p.m. This is a free program that is held on the Children’s patio at the Library on Saturdays and is open to all players of all levels. Reservations are not required.

Wanted: Gently Used or New Legos!

Do you have any gently used or new legos that need a good home? We need donations of gently used or new legos to start a Lego Club. Bring your gently used or new legos to Youth Services Librarian, David Ege in the Children’s Area.

Are you interested in architecture or engineering?

Carmel Valley Branch Library needs a volunteer to facilitate the Future Engineers and Architects of Tomorrow (FEAT) program. As the coordinator, the volunteer will assist elementary and middle school students to have fun building simple structures such as toy cars, bridges, and miniature 3D-cities out of common materials such as straws, paper-clips and newspaper.

This program was started by volunteers and is popular and highly requested. If interested in volunteering to coordinate this program then please contact Branch Manager, Vy Tu or Youth Services Librarian, Dave Ege.

Need help with homework assignments,

test preparations, reading skills, or other school related learning? Volunteer San Diego and READ will be offering tutoring for grades K- 12 on Tuesdays from 6 to 7:45 p.m. Registration is required, so sign up early at the Circulation Desk.

A Yoga Class

for seniors is every Wednesday at 1 p.m. – 2 p.m. This is a free program for seniors only that is held in the Community Room of the Carmel Valley Branch Library. Instructors are from Silver Age Yoga. Every class utilizes chairs but please bring your own exercise mat if desired. No reservations are required.
