The South Pasadena Arts Center (SPACE) will present Art in the Park on Wednesday, July 5th at 3:00 p.m. on the Oxley Street side of Library Park. Artists from SPACE, an organization that encourages the importance of the arts for everyone, will strive to inspire children of all ages to use their imaginations to design their own fun creations. Sponsored by the South Pasadena Public Library, the Friends of the South Pasadena Public Library, and the San Marino Area Chapter – National Charity League, this art opportunity is one of the South Pasadena Public Library’s “Wonderful Wednesdays” programs in the series offered through August 2nd.
In addition to the “Wonderful Wednesdays” series, the Library Children’s Services provides many other Summer Reading Program activities for youth, such as incentives for the time participants spend reading, attending storytimes, craft days, and “Family Game Days, a series for tweens on creative writing, and “Lego® Mania.”. The Summer Reading Program is an eight-week, parent-supervised reading program for infants and children through 5th grade. The Teen Reading Program is for 6th – 12th grade students.
