His diverse musical interests, from classical, folk and bluegrass, to Latin and modern jazz, all find their way into his complex and melodic improvisational music."

Archetti—which means “bow” in Italian—will be treating concertgoers to a program entitled “Masters of the Italian Concerto.”   This eight-person baroque ensemble was formed in 2009 from the leading performers of early music in the Bay Area.  The collective experience and artistry of Archetti’s members has allowed them to develop dynamic, historically-informed interpretations.  In the best tradition of small baroque chamber orchestras, this group performs without a conductor.  “This was a performance of dazzling clarity…Bach at his best.”  [San Francisco Examiner Online]  “An audience-winning performance of Italian Baroque concerti.  The program highlighted the virtuosity of all the string players and their extraordinary ability to achieve a perfect unity of attack and tone.”  [The Independent

Paws to Read

March 1, 8, 15, 22, 29
Friday

3:00-3:25pm and 3:35-4pm

Rincon Branch

Is your child experiencing difficulties reading or simply needs some encouragement to enjoy reading? If so, the Paws to Read program, sponsored by the Livermore Public Library and the Valley Humane Society, might be the solution.

The Paws to Read program matches elementary-aged beginner readers with trained and certified dogs in a non-judgmental environment. For 25 minutes, your child will read to their furry friend with the dog’s owner quietly looking on to help with any tricky words. Programs of this type have been successful across the country, and testimonials from Livermore parents have been extremely positive.

The Spring Paws to Read program for the Rincon Library for 2013 will run as follows:
• Fridays, March 1 through March 29, 2013. (two sessions, 3-3:25 and 3:35-4 p.m.).
• Registration begins Tuesday, February 19, 2013.

Children may register for up to three sessions during the 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.

Is your child experiencing difficulties reading or simply needs some encouragement to enjoy reading? If so, the Paws to Read program, sponsored by the Livermore Public Library and the Valley Humane Society, might be the solution.
The Paws to Read program matches elementary-aged beginner readers with trained and certified dogs in a non-judgmental environment. For 25 minutes, your child will read to their furry friend with the dog’s owner quietly looking on to help with any tricky words. Programs of this type have been successful across the country, and testimonials from Livermore parents have been extremely positive.
The Spring program for Paws to Read at the Civic Center Library is as follows:
• January 16, 2013 through March 6, 2013.
• There are two sessions every Wednesday. The first session is from 7:00pm- 7:25pm. The second session is from 7:35pm- 8:00pm.
• Registration begins Wednesday, January 2, 2013.
Children may register for up to three sessions during the Spring program, 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 about the Civic Center series or to register, please call the Livermore Public Library’s Children’s Desk at 925-373-5504.
