The Sexy Librarian’s Big Book of Erotica: Rose Caraway

I am extremely pleased to work at a library willing to try a little different programming! The South San Francisco Public Library is celebrating “Love in the Library” month! We have an array of traditional Valentine themed programs such as, Blind Date with a Book, and a Valentine Card Craft. However, we also have a few non-traditional programs happening, such as: Online Dating– we’ll help you set up your dating profile, even help you create the best profile photo to help find that special Valentine, we will be hosting a Digital Valentine Card Craft, and on Valentine’s Day we will be screening the cult classic film, Wild at Heart! As if that is not enough- we are also hosting the Sexy Librarian, Rose Caraway, and her Big Book of Erotica! Rose is an author, editor, blogger, podcaster, and audiobook narrator; and we are looking forward to hearing all about her life and career. Please join us on Saturday, February 7th at 2PM- and get your Love on at the Library!

South San Francisco, CA December 20, 2014  Submitted by Anissa Malady SSF Library
 

The South San Francisco Library is hosting a series on Health and Wellness and this FREE event will be the first in this series. Mark your calendar for Tuesday, January 6, 2015 at 6:00 PM at the Municipal Services Building, Council Chambers, 33 Arroyo Dr. FREE parking is available in the underground parking lot.

Kaiser Permanente historian Lincoln Cushing will present a slideshow about the origins of the health plan that opened to the public in 1945. Learn about how industrialist Henry J. Kaiser paired up with physician Sidney Garfield to build a system of health care and hospitals that now serves as a model for the nation. This presentation will explore the evolution from early service to workers in the Mojave Desert, the Grand Coulee Dam, the seven World War II shipyards, and the Fontana steel mill, to post-war care for union members and their families that resulted in massive California expansion – including facilities in South San Francisco.

Lincoln Cushing is the lead archivist at Kaiser Permanente. Cushing has worked as an archival consultant at the Oakland Museum of California and Clorox, and as a Spanish-language cataloger and electronic outreach librarian at UC Berkeley. He has authored numerous books on social justice poster art of the late twentieth century.
