Get Outside the Lines with the Altadena Library District

When was the last time you walked into your local library? In recent years, libraries have changed into dynamic centers for engagement to accommodate the growing needs of their local communities. The Altadena Library invites the community to experience the library in a whole new way. Altadena Library District has a whole slew of special activities slated for this week. Opportunities to be creative and experience your library in a new light.

“We are excited to be a part of Outside the Lines, a global initiative designed to reintroduce libraries to their local communities,” noted Mindy Kittay, Director. “From September 11-17, 2016, organizations just like ours will host events and campaign worldwide. This special week is designed to get people thinking – and talking – about libraries in a whole new way. “We hope to see you at the Altadena Library soon!”

Special Event Details

All week long the Library has special Inspiration Stations where you can create, inspire and engage with your neighbors.

Friday September 16 at pm, the local Girl Scout Troop will be creating a living room/reading area in our parking lot.

Saturday, September 17 from 10:30 to 2:30, Altadena Library will be welcoming Becky Skoglund, a local artist, to help everyone create Happy Window Signs. These signs, created with chalk board paint, can be recreated over and over with new messages to hang in your window. Want to spread happiness, joy and inspiration and bring awareness to the library? Join us and make your own special sign.

Saturday, September 17 at 10:30 the Director will host a special Coffee and Conversation in the Reading Court. This is your opportunity to get the inside scoop on future initiatives such as Community Conversations and the 50th Anniversary of the Main Library.
