Lucha Libros Kickoff

We had lots of fun at our Lucha Libros Information Night yesterday! Kids made masks, wore capes, and took lucha libre photos. Then they lined up to get their official lucha libre name (usually something very silly making very little syntactical sense in Spanish–but fun anyway!) and got their copies of Bunnicula by Deborah and James Howe. Many people requested the Spanish version, Bonicula. I’m placing more copies on hold so that I can have some for Lucha Libros participants held at our Children’s Desk. Currently we have copies of the book in English there, so if you are just signing up now, stop on by!

Also, a clarification: there is still time to sign up for this year-long program! Last night’s event was really a kick-off night to get people signing up. Call 626-744-4725 if you have a 2nd or 3rd grader who is interested!

AnnMarie Hurtado

I'm a youth services librarian working in the Children's Room at the Pasadena Central Library. I purchase juvenile nonfiction books for all sites, juvenile Spanish books for all sites, and juvenile DVDs for the Central Library. I do a lot of programs with school-age kids, including Lucha Libros, writing workshops, STEAM Careers in Pasadena, and other STEAM/science programs. I teach 1-2 sessions of Infant/Toddler Storytime each year. 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, 36 Workshops to Get Kids Writing: From Aliens to Zebras.
