Last year, we started the "Maker Club Emerging Technology Program" classes exploring STEAM initiatives for all ages (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math), and they've been quite popular!

After all, it's not a "club" you have to commit to- simply register for the topics that interest you. (However, since we've had many interesting topics, we've had many repeat visitors!)

Alan Leatherwood (Cassaro) has been a fixture in the music industry for over 50 years. Mahalo Records released Alan's first record nationally in 1963. A couple of years later Alan was on the Old Town label in New York City.

The Mitten

Cover of The Mitten by Jan BrettThe weather is finally turning colder and we need to pull out our warmer clothes. Kids love to bundle up with their favorite hats and mittens.

A great book to share with your children is The Mitten by Jan Brett. It is a magical story of a boy who loses his mitten and it is found by woodland animals.
