    • Books...are only the beginning December 2013 - January 2014 Looking For Something Fun To Do In December? TALK TIME COMES TO SVPL Community Groups Donate to the Library The Library recently received a very generous monetary donation from The Friends of the Simi Valley Library to support our programs and increase the size of our collections. The Library also received a very generous donation from The Busy Hands Garden Club for the purchase of twinkling lights to enhance the Rose Garden patio during evening hours. The Library greatly appreciates the continuous support of these two fine organizations and looks forward to continuing our partnership! Talk Time is an informal conversation practice program for native and non-native English speaking adults. It provides a safe and relaxed environment in the library for these individuals to practice their speaking and listening skills. This program provides an excellent opportunity to meet new people and learn about other cultures! We are looking for adult volunteers to work with library staff and facilitate conversation among those who attend Talk Time. Commit to just one session per week. Bilingual, multilingual are especially needed. Mastery of the English language required.

    • Book Reviews for Adults by Derek Stalcup, Adult Services Librarian The Book of Human Insects by Osamu Tezuka This excellent manga geared towards adults that follows prodigy Toshiko Tomura, a twenty-something who’s already an established international actress and writer. Underneath the veneer of good looks and talent lies a being who only knows how to survive by emulating her lovers and murdering those in her way. Toshiko surrounds herself with talented men, learns their profession, and then leaves them in ruin as she inches up the social latter. Nowhere Men Vol. 1: Fates Worse Than Death by Eric Stephenson COMING SOON! Imagine a world where scientists are looked at in the same light as rock stars and cultural producers… imagine Nowhere Men. Dade Ellis, Simon Grimshaw, Emerson Strange, and Thomas Walker are the scientists who helped push forward a new enlightenment with huge leaps and advances in science and technology. Forming World Corp., the scientific “super group” once revered the world over, has now put the bottom line and progress at any cost above what they once stood for when a group of employees quarantined in secret space station goes missing. Clues of where the employees landed are slowly reemerging… but they have all changed. Nowhere Men Vol. 1 collects issues 1-6 of current comic. Spotlight on SVPL Volunteers Meet Chanal Nualsumlee By Jodi Regan, Volunteer & Community Outreach Coordinator Chanal Nualsumlee is a student at Santa Susana High School and started volunteering here three weeks after we opened. She began shelving and sorting books. In October she added “Homework Helper”, assisting elementary school children after school. Chanal enjoys books! She loves, not only reading them, but organizing them on the library’s shelves. She thinks the library is a nice environment and spends as much time as possible here. On many days, she and her friends can be found in the Teen Lounge, working on a project or studying for a test. Chanal also likes helping children. She recently had the chance to help a Thai child who doesn’t speak much English with his homework. Chanal moved to the United States from Thailand herself when she was very young so knows firsthand the difficulties of learning a new language. Chanal plans on attending college and then pursuing a career helping people on an international level either with UNICEF or the United Nations. We are very happy she is part of our Volunteer Team! Celebrate Computer Science Education Week with Robot & Science Presentation and Workshop Join the Simi Valley Public Library on Saturday, December 7 from 2-4:30pm in the Community Room, as we celebrate Computer Science Education Week (CSEW) with a Robotics and Science Presentation and Workshop. Attendees will explore Robotics and Video Game Design. Presented in partnership with Sandbox Computers for Kids, learn about innovative robotics solutions by 9-14 year olds to protect people during volcanoes and wildfires. Then build your own robot or design your own video game in a workshop for students, grades K through 12. Discover the magic and unravel the mystery of computer science. FIRST LEGO League (FLL) is the world's most popular robotics & science competition for school students aged 9-14. 2 FLL Teams (Merpeople & Vulcan's Cranes), mentored by Sandbox Computers for Kids, Inc., spent months researching and getting their research findings and proposed solutions evaluated by professors (from UCLA & University of Hull, UK) and professionals (VC Fire Dept & Medtronic). Learn about their innovative solutions to protect people during VOLCANOES and WILDFIRES from 2-3pm. Then try your hand at building robots and designing video games. Kids will explore hands-on Computer Programming & Robot Building. The goal is for kids to demystify computer science and unravel the magic for themselves in this free, 90 minute workshop, with help from Sandbox facilitators. Kids will build video games, robots and applications from 3-4:30pm. Sandbox is a local organization with a mission to make computer education fun, relevant and accessible for children.
