Happy Birthday to us
It was fitting that about 100 children were at the Los Gatos Library to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Los Gatos Children's Library. It was fun to lead them -- and their parents -- in singing Happy Birthday to the Library. Children in Los Gatos use the Library a lot and check out about a quarter million items a year. Children's attendance at Library programs has doubled over the last 10 years, and we are squeezed for space during storytimes, one of the most popular features. Learning how to use the Library and feel comfortable and welcome there is a great lesson for youngsters.
