Truly a crowd pleasing event, an evening with The Kingston Trio is pure fun. Exuding charisma, energy and charm, their performances are jam-packed with jokes, history, fabulous memories, and, of course, all of their classic hits including, “Tom Dooley,” “MTA” and “Worried Man.” As founding member Bob Shane put it, “There is a tremendous demand for our type of acoustic music, and not just from those who remember The Kingston Trio. All people want is for us to sing a song, tell a story, and make it good.”

Diavolo
Diavolo was founded in 1992 in Los Angeles by Jacques Heim to create large-scale interdisciplinary performances which examine the ways individuals act with their environment. The company is comprised of dancers, gymnasts and actors who create performances collaboratively under Heim's guidance. The sets are outrageous and surrealistic and form an intrinsic part of each piece of work. Everyday items such as doors, chairs and stairways provide the back-drop for dramatic movement-leaping, flying, twirling-that creates metaphors for the challenge of relationships, the absurdities of life and the struggle to maintain our humanity in an increasingly technological world.

Dirty Rotton Scoundrels - Tri-Valley Repertory Theater
Book Jeffrey Lane Music and Lyrics David Yazbek Based on the film starring Steve Martin and Michael Caine

We're off to the Riviera with Broadway's smash-hit musical comedy, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. This is the story of two very funny con men who try to out-con each other. When it becomes apparent that the Riviera isn't big enough for the both of them, they make a winner-take-all wager over the fortunes of a naïve American soap heiress: the first one to "clean her out" can make the other clear out and keep the Riviera and its unsuspecting tourists to himself! This hysterical musical comedy will have you laughing and rolling in the aisles!

Paws to Read Jan 19 to

7:00 to 8:00pm

Main Library

This popular program, in which children read to dogs, will begin its new season this January. Paws to Read, a program sponsored by the Livermore Public Library and the Valley Humane Society, is based on studies which show that reading with trained therapy dogs can improve a child’s self-esteem and confidence, as well as encourage a child to read more. This program has proved to be very popular, with youngsters perfecting their reading skills.

The Winter program series will take place on Wednesday evenings, January 19 through March 9, 2011,with two sessions between 7 and 8 p.m. Sessions will be approximately 25 minutes long and will be held in the Livermore Public Library Civic Center Storytime/Craft Room. Registration begins Monday, January 10th. Children may register for up to three sessions during the Winter series, as space allows. Drop-ins may be accepted on a first come, first served basis. Participating children should not be fearful of dogs or have allergies to pets.

For more information or to register, please call the Livermore Public Library's Children's Desk at 925-373-5500, ext. 5504.

1906: A Novel
Kick-Off Event
Jan 23
Sunday

2-4pm

Main Library

A special Kick-Off Event for Livermore Reads Together – 1906: A Novel will take place from 2-4pm on Sunday, January 23, 2011 at the Livermore Public Library Civic Center, 1188 S. Livermore Avenue. James Dalessandro, author of 1906: A Novel, will be the featured speaker, and will also show his documentary film The Damnedest Finest Ruins, followed by refreshments and turn-of-the-century music provided by keyboardist Greg Pane.

James Dalessandro was born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1948. While attending Ohio University, he watched a documentary about the Beat Poets, read Howl, and decided to hitchhike to California to make his name as the next Gary Snyder. Dalessandro was too late to become a Beat, but he did join Lawrence Ferlinghetti in co-founding the Santa Cruz Poetry Festival, a renowned annual literary event that attracted the likes of Charles Bukowski, William Burroughs, and Ken Kesey. Dalessandro also worked as a writer at Columbia Pictures, and he currently teaches screenwriting at Academy of Art University in San Francisco. He is the author of Canary in a Coal Mine (a volume of poetry), Bohemian Heart (a detective novel), and Citizen Jane: A True Story of Money, Murder, and One Woman’s Mission to Put a Killer Behind Bars (a true crime book).

Keyboardist Greg Pane has played improvisation music for the silent film showings at The Niles Essanay Silent Film Theater and Museum for 5 years and grew up in Livermore playing music he mocked off the family player piano rolls starting at age 5.

This program is part of Livermore Reads Together, a community-wide reading program featuring James Dalessandro’s book, 1906: A Novel, about the San Francisco earthquake and fire. The community of Livermore is encouraged to join their neighbors by participating in the Livermore Reads Together free events for children and adults during the month of February 2011. Copies of books and event schedules are available at all Livermore Public Library locations. Livermore Reads Together is generously sponsored by The Friends of the Livermore Library.
