There were approximately 25 youngsters that made their way to the Riverbank Library craft on a rainy Tuesday last week to show their artistic talents at the rock painting craft. The participants painted a few rocks with creative designs and colors. All the craft materials were provided by the library and the craft was sponsored by the Friends of the Riverbank Library.

Riverbank resident Joyce Hart brought her granddaughter Kate to the rock painting event to get her out of the house to have some fun. Sisters Iliana and Cecilia Murguia enjoyed their time at the craft and painted unique rocks with several different colors.

The next craft will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 31 at 3:30 p.m. where children can take part in “STEAM Works: Color and Light,” STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Following a Story Time about color, children will discover the properties of color and light through a variety of science activities. STEAM Works is designed for children of kindergarten age and older.

The Riverbank Library is at 3442 Santa Fe St. in Riverbank. For more information, contact the Riverbank Library branch supervisor, Victoria Holt, at (209) 869-7008.
