he Great Shakeout is October 21. Are you Ready?

The Great California Shakeout is an annual opportunity to practice how to be safer during big earthquakes, and the Main Library will be participating in this important drill. If you visit the Library the morning on Thursday, October 21, be ready to participate in our "drop, cover and hold ” drill. 


In addition to the earthquake drill on 10/21, the Library will have:
