Free crafts, storytelling, bugs and more - Africa theme


In a previous blog post, I mentioned the One Community One World program through the San Mateo County Library System. The book is Dave Egger’s What is the What, a story of a Sudanese “lost boy” who left his home during the civil war to walk thousands of miles to Ethiopia.

The library program has a slew of kids programming based on the book themes, and I’ve reprinted the enormous list of free kids’ programs below.
