Cupertino Library: Gateway to Learning

The Santa Clara County Library District, City of Cupertino, Library Commission, the Cupertino Library Foundation, Friends of Cupertino Library and many community groups are joining forces to create and fund a fun and memorable event around the theme ‘Gateway to Learning.’

The official ceremony begins with a brief program at 11:30 am, emceed by Cupertino Mayor Gilbert Wong. The booths and entertainment will begin just following the ceremony and continue until 4:00 pm.

Fun for the Entire Family

Event Cupertino CommunityMore than 20 booths and entertainment options, plus food trucks, are planned around a unique approach to the Dewey Decimal System (DDS). Activities will be staged throughout the Library and Community Hall to entertain children, teens and adults throughout the afternoon including:

  • Entertainment and booths will be in the City Hall plaza
  • Subjects as far reaching as astrology (predict the future of libraries)
  • Financial health (put on by members of the Chamber)
  • Frisbee art (made possible by the Library Foundation)
  • High-school robotics demonstrations
  • A cricket demonstration will be in the field

Don’t Miss the Time Capsule Ceremony at 3:30pm

A unique feature of the 10th anniversary celebration will be the burying of a time capsule, being organized by the Teen Advisory Board, under the direction of Teen Services Librarian, Matt Lorenzo. At 3:30pm, a special ceremony to close and bury the time capsule will take place in the Library courtyard. This is also open to the public.

“The Cupertino Library is one of our greatest success stories in our 100 years as a district,” said Nancy Howe, Santa Clara County District librarian. “The Library has more than 330,000 volumes in its collection, circulates more than 2.5 million items annually and welcomes over 850,000 visitors annually.”

The access to the online resources increases dramatically as well. The S^4 summer science contest, sponsored by the Cupertino Library Foundation, the Library and the Cupertino Union School District, introduced hundreds of middle school students to the online databases that encourage primary research and critical thinking. The new Common Core Standards encourage these life-long skills.
