The library branch list will be one short in Oceanside during the month of March. Mission Branch library closes for new floor and carpeting work just after Oceanside locals got together to restore the natural reading habit to the center of culture during The Big Read month begun February 1st.
April, new modern carpet will welcome patrons back to the book rows in the Mission Avenue branch, found just east of El Camino Real. Freinds of the OCeanside Library will keep the northern city's library offers going as normal until the renovated Mission Branch library reopens. Last night, the screening of Dashiel Hammett's The Maltese Falcon, at the OCeanside Museum of Art, again showed the charitable organization never forgets to keep free learning an opportunity for all. The free book copies handed out play just one small role in making reading a running OCeanside story.
Civic Center Library on North Coast Highway stays open to fit in the city's regular readers, and visitors. The branch celebrates Dr. Seuss' birthday early in March. Storytime for families and children, with the minutes in Cat in the Hat on the clock, gives locals an opportunity to learn Seuss by heart. The Read Across America event proves no one has to worry about having to stay outside during March.
Mondays, 10 am to 5 pm, a Bookmobile in the Mission Avenue parking lot will check out books to the reading crowds. The locals also can stop in a park during the month for one of the regularly scheduled Bookmobile showings.
Workers on the Mission Branch project will take care of building maintance Oceanside put off for a later date.
