Second Saturday Spotlight – Walnut Creek Library Review

Here are the highlights of the first Second Saturday Spotlight at the Walnut Creek Library.  If you missed it, join us for the next one at the Lesher Center for the Arts on February 9th for the “State of the City”  – here is the link…


The Librarian gave us a tour of the Lincoln Exhibit, it is the 150th anniversary of the Civil War.

People gathering for the tour on a very early Saturday morning before the Library even opened.

Second Saturday Spotlight

Each month, on the Second Saturday Spotlight will “shine” on a new subject for Walnut Creek. From  9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. will include hands-on demonstrations and guided tours in and around our city.

If you liked the movie Lincoln and want to learn more about our 16th President, then check out the first Spotlight event this Saturday January 12 for  “Walnut Creek Library’s Inside Story” with a docent tour of the national touring Lincoln Exhibit.  I will be volunteering at the event and hope to see you.  Doors open @ 8:45 am.


  • February 9: State of the City address at Lesher Center for the Arts
  • March 9: “Keeping things running smoothly” — behind the scenes at the Public Services Maintenance Corp Yard
  • April 13: Walnut Creek’s legacy of Open Space, led by the Walnut Creek Open Space Foundation

I will update the remaining year in a future blog, these are fun ways to learn more about your community and what a great place Walnut Creek is to live.  Here is the link for registration and more information.
