Coming up at the Holgate Library: 

Join us at the 82nd Avenue of Roses Parade! (Here are some pictures from last year.) Staff and volunteers from your Holgate Library will be marching... see if you can find us among the bands, classic cars, floats and other groups! Begins at Eastport Plaza at 10:00 a.m. this Saturday (4/27) and proceeds northward to Yamhill. (82nd will be closed for the duration.) Announcers (one of whom is that rascal, Patrick, from Holgate Library) are stationed at PCC.

After all your parade, carnival and cruise-in fun, consider a quieter afternoon...

This Saturday, 'Name That Tree'! April 27, 2-3:30 p.m.
Ever stopped to think about that tree in front of your house? How about those that shade the schoolyard or your walk to the bus stop? Portland is a Tree City USA, home to diverse and growing urban canopy. Do you know their names? How or why they were planted here? What will they look like in the fall... in the winter? Get on a first-name basis with the urban forest in this fun session with your Neighborhood Tree Stewards. They'll teach you how to use a tree identification book, and then you'll take your new skills for a walk! The first half of the program will take place in the library, the second half will be a short walk exploring the neighborhood's trees. 
Registration recommended; register online, in the library, or by calling 503-988-5324.
Thanks! See you soon...
