bus image
Cupertino Library
Kids of all ages are invited to the Cupertino Library for a fun, bus-themed craft activity followed by a chance to step on board a bus from the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority. The craft will take place in the library from 1:30 to 2:30, and kids may bring family photos to use for the activity. Following the craft, we’ll have a chance to get on board a real, VTA bus and hear a story. The bus will be parked outside the library from 1:00 to 4:00, and parents and children can stop by anytime during those two hours to visit inside the bus. A representative from the VTA will provide information for parents about the 2017 Summer Youth Pass – a VTA program that allows kids and teens to ride the bus this summer at a greatly reduced rate.

7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Los Altos Library
The Big Picture of Photography with Bob Ray

Come "see the light" from a photographic artist who has been placing his subjects in their best light for over 40 years.

Bob Ray is an “inspirer” for photography enthusiasts, teaching and speaking on photography across the United States, Europe and South America. He is also a speaker in high-demand for cruise ships - Crystal, Princess and others - as well as a radio Hall of Fame nominee for his years on-the-air here in the South Bay and San Francisco.

Bob shares that the difference between a snapshot and a great shot is,“five seconds or five steps.” Take your photography to a whole new level with better pictures of family, friends and places after sharing two hours with Bob.
