Library displays student artwork, readies for Children’s Book Day

In celebration of National Library Month, five charcoal drawings of “The Skater: Interpretations & Perspectives” by Ramona High School art students are on display in Ramona Library through Tuesday, April 30.

The five students — Tricia Krussow, Amber Kerrigan, Alyssa Virgilio, Jeffery Hughes and Tessa Collins — are in Ramona High art teacher Liz Schade’s advanced art class.

Also this month, families, teens, and children are invited to festivities celebrating Children’s Book Day with children’s literacy activities, books, and bilingual reading from 3 to 6 p.m. on April 30. It is recognized as El Dia de Los Ninos in Spanish speaking countries as well as the United States.

The community is invited to enjoy swashbuckling pirate stories with Captain Book and the Good Ship Literacy plus a free book giveaway while being entertained by the traditional folklorico dancers from Ramona del Sol Troupe.

Participants in the day’s festivities also will have the opportunity to learn how to make tissue paper flowers or a beaded bookmark, and play games and win prizes sponsored by San Diego County Office of Education, Migrant Education and San Diego County Library.
