An English Conversation Club meets each Thursday at the Escalon Library, 1540 Second St., Escalon, and is just one of a series of regularly scheduled programs offered at the local branch.
Recent Saturday programs focused on gardening, with a special presentation by New Mettle Farms on Gardening to Enhance Your Memory and the Science Saturday activity for kids giving them a chance to plant some flowers and vegetables. Look for a story and photos from those two Saturday, March 11 events in the March 22 issue of The Times.
Coming up, the monthly Read to a Therapy Dog program is set for Thursday, March 16 at 3:30 p.m. and that is when the next meeting of the English Conversation Club is scheduled as well. The latter is a weekly session, giving residents whose primary language is not English the chance to converse and work on their English skills.
Friends of the Library will be having its quarterly meeting on Friday, March 17 at 9:30 a.m.; all are welcome to attend.
The library still has its Tea of the Month feature, providing a free take-home kit with tea bags, craft projects, information and more. The March tea is Spring Cherry.
Also back is a popular Tiny Art Show, with the kits available for pick up starting Saturday, March 18. The kits include a tiny canvas and paints; the artwork must be done on the provided tiny canvas and deadline for turning in the artwork is Friday, March 31. The works will then be on display in the library during April; all ages are welcome to participate. The kits are available while supplies last.
Every fourth Tuesday, the library has a 10:30 a.m. Book Club Café, an adult book club where everyone is welcome to come and discuss whatever book they are reading or just sit and sip coffee or tea while reading.
Rounding out the busy month, a Live Action Pac-Man program is set for Wednesday, March 29 with a 5:45 p.m. check in time. Open to all ages, you can join in to make a custom Pac-Man shirt, followed by a live action game. Register at www.ssjcpl.org and list your T-shirt size.
