NORTHSIDE Cuatro de Mayo

Cuatro de MayoSince Northside Branch Library is closed on Sundays, we are celebrating Cuatro de Mayo! This is our nod to Cinco de Mayo, only one day earlier. Join us for:

  • 10 am - 3 pm - Santa Clara City Library's Foundation and Friends Mostly $1 Booksale

  • 10:30 am - Rabbit and Coyote are Friends Puppet Show*

    We are kicking off our "Cuatro de Mayo" events with "Rabbit and Coyote are Friends" puppet show! This classic Mexican fairy tale and famous children's book will teach your kids about friendship and trust. Story description: Why do Coyotes howl? Why can Rabbit be seen on the moon? When did these two animals start playing tricks on each other? Why can't the Moon marry the Sun? These questions will all be answered by this classic Mexican fairy tale. You'll laugh while Mice do a Mexican hat dance, Rabbit & Coyote chase each other, and a Cactus shows off his chicken dance. 

  • 4 pm - Chewbacca Piñata Craft* (while supplies last)
    In celebration of "May the Forth Be With You," we are making Chewbacca pinatas filled with candy.
