Registration for the 2019 Summer Reading Program at the Alameda Free Library is now open. Created to encourage reading as well as life-long learning, this eight-week program is open to everyone from birth through adult.
Like last year, registration and the tracking of reading and activity completion will take place online, enabling anyone to take part in the program from home, on a mobile device, or by using the computers at the library. All three library branches will have a supply of physical game boards available to those who prefer them.
Marnell Xavier’s West Coast Dance Theatre (WCDT) is now preparing for its 46th annual musical song and dance productions, “Dance to the Music.” Two different productions on two different days, but both are a cavalcade of fluorescent colors, pop tunes and funky, fancy footwork.
“Under The Sea,” a one-act production celebrating 46 years of one, two and three generations of West Coast Dancers takes place Wednesday, June 19, at 7:30 p.m. at the Alameda Elks Lodge, 2255 Santa Clara Ave. The performance will showcase tiny tots to adults with four months of professional experience.
