ANNUAL MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. CELEBRATION

Save the Date Saturday, January 17, 2015 Join us in this FREE celebratory and fun event as we gather together to honor the powerful vision and message of Martin Luther King, Jr. For more information, call 237-3988.

December: Pat Cairns ART AT THE LIBRARY

September: Carol Timson BallPeggy Turk

Whether figurative or abstract, her paintings demonstrate strong design, bold contrasts, and a sense of drama.

Calling it “Dual Perspectives,” the two artists will paint the approximate same scene in two different mediums.

October: Dave Pittaway

Friday, October 24 10:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. Saturday, October 25 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 pm.

September: Matthew Pomerico

November: Mallory Caloc

Her paintings are mixed media—ink, watercolor, and acrylic—on clay board, and her abstract wall sculptures use polyurethane foam and latex caulk.

Woodcarver Matthew Pomerico describes himself as more of a craftsman than an artist, but viewing his fine woodcarvings proves he is definitely both. His wooden toys, Christmas ornaments, and cowboy scenes make one-of-a-kind gifts. Having carved for many years, Pomerico’s distinct carving style is highly imaginative and creative.

Infants, six to twelve months, learn to roll over from a face down position in the water onto their backs to relax, breathe. Babies will learn to roll and float fully clothed in case of an accidental fall into water. Learning these skills takes approximately 12 to 20 lessons. Lessons are one-on-one, 3 days a week, scheduled between 7:00 and 9:15 a.m. on Fridays, Saturdays, and Mondays. Parent participation may be required. Reusable swim diaper if appropriate.

Results in weeks not years! Toddlers and older children are taught the swim-float-swim-sequence. They learn to swim—full immersion and independently—and when exhausted during their swim, learn to flip onto their back, breathe, relax, regain strength, and continue to swim to safety. Children will learn to swim fully clothed in case of an accidental fall into water. Survival swimming skills serve as the foundation for learning correct stroke technique, while protecting your child from aquatic accidents. This program evolves from survival skills to recreational swimming with beginning strokes within a short time period and allows your child and you to enjoy the water safely. Children take approximately 20 to 32 lessons to acquire and consistently demonstrate these skills. Lessons are one-on-one, 3 days a week, scheduled between 7:00 and 9:15 a.m. on Fridays, Saturdays, and Mondays. Reusable swim diaper may be required.

September features the work of Carol Timson Ball and Peggy Turk. Calling it “Dual Perspectives,” the two artists will paint the approximate same scene in two different mediums. Using oils and pastels, the en plein air paintings will depict Central Coast vistas, including ocean and inland.

Mallory Caloca, a recent Cal Poly graduate with a Bachelors of Fine Arts, enjoys exploring a hybrid of imagined “micro world” environments and is influenced by Cubist techniques. Her paintings are mixed media—ink, watercolor, and acrylic—on clay board, and her abstract wall sculptures use polyurethane foam and latex caulk.

MATTHEW POMERICO Woodcarver Matthew Pomerico describes himself as more of a craftsman than an artist, but viewing his fine woodcarvings proves he is definitely both. His wooden toys, Christmas ornaments, and cowboy scenes make one-of-a-kind gifts. Having carved for many years, Pomerico’s distinct carving style is highly imaginative and creative.

Our selections for fall are: September: Boy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyeyemi

October Display Case:

An unusual retelling of the Snow White story. In 1953, Boy Novak, looking for beauty, marries a widower and becomes stepmother to his daughter, Snow. Boy never imagined herself as a wicked stepmother, but when the darkskinned Bird is born, questions of race and the power of appearances come into play.

By apprenticing himself to several master chefs, Pollan learns how to grill with fire, cook with liquid, bake bread, and use fermentation to make cheese and beer.

Combining her lifelong love of cooking, with her new-found passion for creating delicious, easy-to-make recipes, she developed an array of great-tasting recipes. Her doctor sampled her creations and encouraged her to publish a cookbook to assist other patients who were having a hard time adjusting to the changes required in their diet. Even though Diane was surprised by the suggestion, she nonetheless decided to follow her doctor’s advice and the result was a user-friendly cookbook called THE FREE COOKBOOK! Diane hopes that anyone with a glutenintolerance, or those who want to cut artificial sweeteners and sugar out of their diet, will find her recipes tasting like wonderfully-familiar comfort foods that

Pickleball is a racquet sport that has been heralded as “the fastest growing sport in the country.” It is like tennis— but different. Like racquet ball—but different. The ball is like a whiffle ball— but different. The court is like tennis—but smaller. We use a paddle—but this is not paddle tennis. The net is 2” shorter than a tennis net. Pickleball is fun, very social, and you get an excellent workout with less stress on the joints than the game of tennis. The instructor, Jack Hodges, an avid tennis player and tennis instructor, discovered the advantages of Pickleball after retiring from coaching baseball. Jack has equipment for you to use so you can try the sport—so drop in anytime.

We have a commingled, or single stream, recycling system. We allow customers to recycle without sorting. This program is easy, efficient, and maximizes materials accepted for recycling. The recyclables are transported to a material recovery facility (MRF) where they are sorted into highquality feedstock streams.

INSTRUCTIONS • All recyclables must be placed in the container with the lid completely closed. • Only use the recycling container provided by us. • No Hazardous Materials such as oil, pesticides, paint or cleaners. No putrescible waste like food scraps, diapers, etc.

CONTAMINATION can make any recyclable material ineligible for recycling. Some materials, like metals, can be recycled even with high levels of contamination. Other materials, like polystyrene, are barely recyclable to begin with, and can be rendered completely ineligible for recycling even with the slightest trace of contamination.
