Story Town

posted Jul 31, 2012, 5:31 PM by Dina Barraza   [ updated Aug 6, 2012, 12:14 PM ]

Story Town is a fun event that takes place at the Joel-Valdez Main Library in early November.  Library staff, teens and volunteers can dress up and act out a scene or a book from one of their favorite stories.  It's a great interactive event, especially for young children.

For TAB Members, it's a day where you can just have some fun with costumes, sets, makeup, you name it!  There will be small skits and plays for you to watch.

TAB Members: Which story are you most excited to get acted out?  If you could chose a book character to portray, who would it be?

All Souls Parade

posted Jul 31, 2012, 5:30 PM by Dina Barraza   [ updated Aug 6, 2012, 12:17 PM ]

The All Soul's Parade is coming up soon in November!  Are you excited?  I certainly am!  This year, the Teen Advisory Board is participating as a whole with TABC.  We've still yet to come up with costumes, but I can hardly wait.

.....speaking of costumes

I have been recently informed that many library branches across Pima County will be hosting a craft time where you can come in and design your own mask!  How cool is that!

In case you are not familiar with the All Soul's Parade, I will link a description website here (  This is basically a day when you remember those who have passed away.  It can be a loved one, a friend, a pet, etc.

Branch Librarians will be sharing more information in the coming months.

I hope to see you there!
