October is the best month of the year. I mean, how amazing is it when it’s 100 degrees one day, and a crisp 76 the next? It’s like Mother Nature finally let out a deep breath and the world sprung to life with golden leaves and bright blue skies and white fluffy clouds and a soft breeze … and yes, I love October.

But what makes this month particularly important is the celebration of the year’s best holiday: Halloween. I am a fiend for it. I spend the entire month trying to find scary books, watching scary movies – even ones like “The Others” and “The Sixth Sense” in which the ending makes up the whole point of the movie – and going places that embrace the Halloween spirit.

Here are some of my local(ish) suggestions to get into the holiday spirit in the Sacramento area... Read More

Sookie Stackhouse Halloween Party Cooking Demonstration October 9

Sookie Stackhouse Halloween Party Cooking Demonstration October 9

Do vampires send a thrill down your spine?  Do werewolves make you howl with delight?  Even if the paranormal world leaves you cold, you’ll find something to set your taste buds ablaze at the Davis Branch Library and Davis Food Co-op’s Sookie Stackhouse Halloween Party Cooking demonstration on Thursday, October 9 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Blanchard Room of the Mary L. Stephens Davis Branch Library, located at 315 East 14th Street in Davis.

Cha-Choomba Chair Dance Class September 27

Cha-Choomba Chair Dance Class September 27

(Woodland, CA) – Want your limbs to stay limber with well-toned muscles?  Then come to the Blanchard Room of the Mary L. Stephens Davis Branch Library, located at 315 East 14th Street in Davis, on Saturday, September 27, from 10:30 a.m. to noon, and enjoy a free Cha-Choomba chair dance class. 

Cha-Choomba is like Zumba, but in a chair; an exhilarating, high energy, choreographed exercise routine to red-hot music while sitting down.  There’s little chance of falling in this low-impact exercise class taught by Lellingby Boyce.

“If you seek the zing of Zumba from the safety of a chair, then come to the Davis Branch Library and try Cha-Choomba!” said Yolo County Librarian Patty Wong.

Reservations are not required.  Sponsored by the Yolo County Library, all programs free.  The Blanchard Room of the Mary L. Stephens Davis Branch Library is accessible for persons with disabilities.
