Summer Learning Programs in East Palo Alto and Fair Oaks Libraries

Brittany Brady

This past year, children from North Fair Oaks and East Palo Alto participated in the San Mateo County Library's Summer Learning Program. This intensive, fun-filled learning program combines science, math, reading, yoga, art, technology skills, and more. The program also provides children with nutritious snacks and lunch. Maria-Diaz Slocum was the librarian and instructor at the Fair Oaks Library's "Camp Awesome." The kids that participated in Camp Awesome were just that - awesome!

This year, the County Library System expanded the program to seven of the County's libraries, including Atherton, East Palo Alto, Fair Oaks, Half Moon Bay, South San Francisco, Belle Haven and La Honda/Pescadero. We hope those who participated had a great time!
