Kids ages 8 and up are becoming dedicated chess players here each Saturday afternoon from 3:30-5 PM. They are learning techniques and strategies that will help them learn how to use logic and sharpen their cognitive skills while having fun. If you know someone who would like to join the fun tell them about our Library Chess Club.

Paddy was there this morning on the last day for Paddy’s Coffee. He told me and other loyal fans of his shop that this is just a brief rest. He will be back soon with a new location and a new place for the Union City community to go for a relaxed atmosphere to hang out and enjoy refreshments and conversation. We will miss Paddy’s Coffee and look forward to it’s new incarnation wherever it may be. I hope it is closer to the Library so we can maybe have a book club there?
Don’t miss the performance this Saturday afternoon of the Indian Bollywood style muscial group Jhankar Live!

Fun for everyone in the family this Summer at your Library!
Last Saturday artist Marion Coleman demonstrated the art of quilting and encouraged kids, teens, and parents to draw self portraits for our community quilting project. The drawings were colored with special fabric crayons and the artists selected background papers to compliment their self portraits. Next Marion will transfer the drawings to fabric with her iron. She will design borders and put the art together and stitch the quilt. We can’t wait to see how it will look. To see a sample quilt come to the children’s area of the Library. We have one in the display case. The finished quilt will be hung in the children’s picture book area of the Library.
