This 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 combined science, math, reading, yoga, art, technology skills, and fun. They also were provided nutritious snacks and lunch! All had a great time. My wife, Maria-Diaz Slocum, was the Librarian/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 - Atherton, East Palo Alto, Fair Oaks, Half Moon Bay, South San Francisco, Belle Haven and La Honda/Pescadero.
