Dozens of kids came to play, read, eat and watch a movie at the Culver City Julian Dixon Library on Saturday July 17. “Charlotte’s Web” was the book being celebrated this summer, and while the hoped-for tarantulas did not come to play, lots of families did.
The Gizas, Chris and Rosanne, brought their son Vincent to enjoy the evening. “We just finished reading the book last night,” said Chris, “it was a great bedtime story for the last two weeks.”
Gus and Joyce Pu and their son Kai all snuggled in to the stacks to see the film, admitting that they hadn’t read the book, “but we love the kids events at the library. It’s always something fun.”
The kids enjoyed having their faces painted with silver spiderwebs, and buying books from the Friends of the Library’s special sale collection. While there was lots of loud boisterous fun in the community room, when the children brought their pillows and blankets into the main room for the film, decorum was restored. After the movie began, Children’s Librarian Joan Mead commented “It’s almost as quiet as a library in here.”
