Alameda Main Library
In three free workshops coming up this month, computer users can brush up on their computing skills at the Alameda Main Library, 1550 Oak St. The classes will focus on the Windows operating system and how to integrate it with portable devices.
A presentation entitled “Truth and Beauty: The Pre-Raphaelites and the Old Masters” has been scheduled for Monday, July 16, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Alameda Main Library Stafford Room.
Fright Night Escape Room
Something isn’t quite right. There’s an eerie calm in the air and it seems like you and your friends are the only people left on earth. Can you solve the mystery and get out in time before succumbing to the force that has taken over?
Artwork and artists can have a great influence on their communities. Teen artists are invited to create drawings, paintings, doodles and other works of art that will inspire Alamedans to read. The art will be displayed in the Homework Center in the Main Library.
Let’s be honest. We all judge books by their covers. Sometimes readers pick up books because they have a cool photograph or an interesting pattern on the cover. Other books are just as easily passed by because of an outdated, faded, or just plain ugly cover.
