Karen Rae Kraut played to a packed audience in the Central Library’s Donald R. Wright Auditorium this morning! Check out all the photos on our Facebook page. And don’t forget that we have lots of fun music and entertainment available for you every Thursday at 10 am this summer. Check our newsletter or our Kids’ Events Calendar to find out more about which performers we’ll be hosting!
I'm a youth services librarian currently working at the Lamanda Park Branch Library while Central Library is closed for seismic repairs. I purchase juvenile fiction for grades 2-8, and some foreign languages. I do a lot of programs with school-age kids, including 3 regular book clubs (Windows and Mirrors, Read Around the World, and Lucha Libros), as well as writing workshops and STEAM/science programs. I also Infant/Toddler Storytimes and Preschool Storytimes, and outreach to local area preschools. I love what I do, working with kids of all ages to inspire them to learn and use their curiosity and imaginations. Outside of my work at the library, I am also the author of a book on creative writing activities for kids.
