Seeking Artists for the Library's First Chalk Walk!

We are hosting our first Chalk Walk at the Library on Saturday, July 21, and are seeking both emerging and experienced artists in our community to participate! The event will feature 12 selected artists' work and will offer separate space for walk-on artists, guests, and families with children to create their own chalk masterpieces.



Summer Reading Weekly Performances for Children Continue

Every Tuesday throughout the Children's Summer Reading program, the Altadena Libraries present dynamic performances for children of all ages! This Tuesday, June 26  at 2:00pm at the Main Library and 4:00pm at the Bob Lucas Branch, get ready to take a trip to Ancient Mexico as Sounds & Songs of My Ancestors introduces our young guests to water drums, rain sticks, and rattles! Details of all Summer Reading performers are included in children's Summer Reading Passports, so pick up a Passport and register online to stay up-to-date.



Save the Date - Crowne Comedy Live Improv is Coming to the Library!

Get ready for knee-slapping fun with the zany and talented comedy troupe Crowne Comedy Live! On Saturday, June 30 at 4:30pm, veterans of the Comedy Central stage Erin Berry, Matt Catanzano, Tim Johnson, and Bill Connolly will bring their combined four decades of comedy to the Community Room stage and put on a side-splitting show... with NO script!


Seed Library - "Altadena's Horticultural History" with Michele Zack

In a joint program of Altadena Heritage and the Library, on Saturday, July 7 at 10:00am, local historian and author Michele Zack will tell an interesting, illustrated story of Altadena's horticultural past - that of the West India Garden. Frederick O. Popenoe established this nursery in 1906 to cultivate subtropical fruits and other plants in high demand due to the thousands of newcomers pouring into Southern California.  Pictured: Frederick's son Paul Popenoe stands with date palm offshoots the Popenoe family arranged to export back to California.
