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. Reusable swim diaper if appropriate.

Alice Ronke paints in a representational, impressionistic style, with a subject matter that is predominately landscapes but also includes still life and floral topics. Her goal is to capture the excitement, rhythm, sense of peace, or sheer beauty of a scene. Ronke clarifies the feeling she wishes to express in a painting by applying the principles of composition to bring order to the chaos of nature. FEBRUARY ARTIST OF THE MONTH JUAN GILDRES February features the photography of Juan Gildres. FEBRUARY DISPLAY CASE February will feature the creative ceramic works of art instructor Jeanne Aird’s Flamson Middle School students.

Library Volunteer Nancy Stephens was honored as the Library Volunteer of the Year 2013 at the Paso Robles City Library’s annual volunteer reception. Nancy began her service to the Paso Robles City Library in September 1996 and has been a tremendous asset to the library every day since. Wearing two hats, Nancy is responsible for training volunteers in the processing of materials new to the collection, and for training and supervising those volunteers who clean and mend items well-worn by public use. “This is the 12th year the Library has presented a Library Volunteer of the Year Award and we couldn’t be happier to award it this year to Nancy,” said Library Manager Karen Christiansen. “She has been a fantastic asset to our staff, quietly working behind the scenes to keep both new and repaired materials accessible to our patrons. Her calm presence has made it easy for new volunteers and staff to learn the art of materials maintenance. We thank her for being such a great library advocate!” Previous winners are Jean Schubert, 2002; Janine Kramer, 2003; Audrey Krauss 2004; Ann Martinez, 2005; Denise Surber, 2006; Joan Case, 2007; Mike Reagan, 2008; Cappy Culver, 2009; Nan Madding, 2010; Bill Dupree, 2011; and Jean Schweitzer, 2012. Nancy’s name has been added to the perpetual plaque in the Library. The annual volunteer reception recognizes the 130-plus Library volunteers and the 16,000-plus hours they contribute each year in pursuit of excellence in library service.

petty criminal. She’s all this and more . . . but is she a murderer? Susan Hayward won 1958’s Best Actress Academy Award for her “sensational, nerve-shattering performance” (Los Angeles Times) in this harrowing tale that will leave you breathless with suspense. Arrested for fatally beating an elderly widow, Barbara Graham (Hayward) at first goads the police, refusing to answer their questions. But when an alleged accomplice turns state’s evidence, Graham insists that she’s innocent. Condemned by the press and the public, Graham is found guilty of murder and sentenced to die in the gas chamber. But as her execution date nears, Graham desperately attempts to expose the truth and save her life against all odds.

DEPARTMENT POLICIES Registration: Jesusita Martinez (805) 237-3988

Activity Enrollment A minimum number of participants is required to hold programs. The Department of Library and Recreation Services reserves the right to cancel a program that does not meet this minimum and participants will receive a full refund or credit. It is highly recommended that you pre-register as early as possible to avoid programs being cancelled due to lack of enrollment.

Activity Refund & Cancellation For ongoing classes, participants may drop the class after they attend the first meeting and receive a partial refund, but they must file for a refund before the second class. No refunds will be issued after the second class. For Summer Swim Program or classes only meeting once, you must file for a refund at least five business days before the class starts. If the participant cancels, he/she must contact the Centennial Park Registration Office, and will be subject to a minimum $7 service charge. Refunds for cash registrations will be mailed from the City Finance Department approximately two weeks after the request is received.

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.

www.prwaste.com/recycling-guide Check for updates. Our list increases as recycling technology improves.
