July 19, 2012 @ 6:00pm-11pm FREE! Registration Required
This year’s Summer Reading club theme for teens is “Own the Night.” How fitting, then, to hold the first-ever Library After Hours Final Party? This epic, free event will be held July 19th at 6:00 p.m. in the Barth Community Room. Registration is required: see the Children’s Reference desk or call the library for details.
Teens will show the night who’s the boss with ninja challenges of stealth, endurance and balance. They’ll also be making recipes fit for creatures of the night (eyeballs, hot dog mummies, and blood punch, anyone?) and have a blast with their friends, making mini-marshmallow monster sculptures, and playing party games like Apples to Apples and Mafia. We will cap off the festivities with pizza and a movie.
Be afraid. Be very afraid! You never know what lurks in the library. All teens in attendance registered for the Summer Reading Club will receive raffle tickets good for a variety of prizes, including a pair of Disneyland Park Hopper tickets. Winners will be announced July 23rd.
This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Crowell Public Library, the Aquarium of the Pacific, El Pollo Loco, Flightdeck Air Command Center, Huntington Library, Jump ‘n Jammin, Peterson’s Automotive, Pie ‘n Burger, Santa Anita Park, Spaghetti Factory.

The Consulate General of the People’s Republic of China in Los Angeles and the Xinhua News Agency, Los Angeles Bureau, will be presenting the Celebration of the 15th Anniversary of Hong Kong’s Return to China photo exhibition, on the first Monday and Tuesday of July in the Barth Community Room of Crowell Public Library.
The exhibit consists of forty selected photos, including some invaluable, seldom-shown historical photos. The show will educate visitors in the history, culture and the daily lives of Hong Kong residents.
Xinhua Gallery is a successful division of the Xinhua News Agency. Since it began to stage exhibitions in May 2010, hundreds of exhibits have been held in over 100 countries around the world. The China Photo Archive, which belongs to Xinhua News Agency, contains over six million historical photos going back to the 1850s. The Xinhua multimedia database holds more than 10 million current photos, and every day Xinhua is releasing over 2,000 photos taken by its photographers all over the world. The combination of the abundant resources and Xinhua’s strength in editing and display has made Xinhua Gallery photo show attractive to visitors.
For more information on this exhibit, contact Jessie Liu, 626-321-2468, firstname.lastname@example.org

Because there are many areas of our lives that still need organizing, we have asked The Queen of dClutter to return. TRACY McCUBBIN, professional organizer extraordinaire, has given several workshops at Crowell Public Library to standing room only crowds. She has the diplomacy to deal with horders and the expertise to tackle all clutter dilemmas including the garage, so gentlemen, start your engines and get it in gear here at Crowell Public Library.
A clean environment aids concentration and increases productivity. Don’t let accumulated clutter stress you out. “Liveable Organization” is about organization that’s easy for you to live in, co-exist with, and ultimately maintain. Learn to reduce, reorganize, and recycle, so you can relax. Tracy will offer professional tips and explore the mindset that blocks us from letting go of things. Take control of your physical space!
“dClutter Between the Covers” is part of the Adult Summer Reading Program at Crowell Public Library. Registering for the summer reading program is easy: just visit the Adult Reference desk to sign up and start reading! Pick up a Between the Covers brochure and see what other programs will be happening this summer. Write a book review or a six-word novel and a prize may be in your future.
