Youth Art Month! @ Central CCR

All month long, we'll be celebrating Youth Art Month! Starting on the first Saturday, come to the Children's floor to weave a little or a lot and contribute to our community weaving project. We'll be using hula hoop as our loom in order to make a fabulous piece of fabric art! Also check out our art, craft, and maker programs throughout the month, as well as a display of past art projects in the display case on the 2nd floor, and in the cases facing Kittredge Street!

Knitting Hour

Join us on 3/19 for our newly expanded Knitting Hour on 3/19 at 3pm in the Central Branch’s 4th floor Story Room. Now the “hour” runs from 3-5 so that we can include crocheters and those who would like to learn how to crochet. The Knitting Hour is an intergenerational program for ages 8 and up. Learn how to knit or crochet; knit and crochet with others and be inspired! Some supplies are available

Animation Workshop @Central CMR

Hailing from the Malvern Hills, England, Peter Millard is unique in the world of contemporary animation. His films consist of sad men, driving ducks and even sadder bananas, and while his films appear childlike and simplistic there is a demented sophistication at work. Advance registration is required, as space is limited! To sign up please contact Emily Foster at or 510-981-6121. Participants of all skill levels, ages 12 and up, are welcome to attend.
