Celebrate the arrival of summer with storytelling and fun crafts!


11:30AM • 1:30PM • 3PM: Storyteller Alton Chung will perform his one-man show Heroes which tells the story of the heroic actions of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, 100th Infantry Battalion, and the Military Intelligence Service (MIS). This program contains mature themes that may not be appropriate for younger audience members.

1PM – 4PM: Make delicious summer fun trail mix with Kidding Around the Kitchen.

2PM: Join us for story time! We’ll be reading Under the Cherry Blossom Tree, a traditional Japanese folktale written by Japanese American author Allen Say.


• June 8th is Best Friend’s Day. Make friendship bracelets to celebrate!

• Help us lighten up for the summer. We’re pulling out all kinds of fun stuff found in our crafts closet, so bring your creativity and be ready to be surprised!

• Ruthie’s Origami Corner: Make a fun Father’s Day card.

Generously sponsored by Target, these special Saturdays are filled with fun activities giving families unique ways to learn, play, and grow together.
