    Rules:
    • You and your opponent make a fist with one hand and tap it three times on the fist of the other hand (or another hard surface).
    • You and your opponent should both count the strokes out loud.
    • On the third tap you and your opponent should both make or “throw” your characterizations of either ROCK, PAPER, or SCISSORS very distinctly, at the exact same time, so there is absolutely no mistake what you threw.
    • Winner is awarded 1 point for the winning throw. (Rock dulls/beats scissors, paper covers/beats rock, scissors cuts/beats paper.)
    • If you and your opponent “throw” the same character, no points are awarded.

    Come celebrate San Carlos' Week of the Family here at the library! We have invited the Little Explorer's Petting Zoo to come teach us all about the farm animals that live on their farm. There will be 25 of the friendliest farm animals you have ever seen for you to see up close and personal. Come touch and learn about their alpaca, pot belly pig, large tortoise, goats, sheep, chickens, ducks, and bunnies. Visitors will have an opportunity to feed the animals a small snack, as well as learn how to hold the smaller animals. In order to make sure everyone has a one-on-one experience with the animals, visitors will be taking turns coming inside of the small petting zoo.

    Since its inception in 1999, the Week of the Family Committee has designated the Monday evening of the week as a night reserved for families to stay at home and do something specifically with their family. It is hoped that reserving one night per week will become habit-forming. To show their support, San Carlos principals unanimously declared Monday, as a "No Homework" night.

    Family Activity Night is for everyone. You are encouraged to “adopt” friends and neighbors who would enjoy an evening of family activities.

    Ideas for things to do as a family:
    • Play board or card games
    • Get out the family photo album
    • Make up a play or story
    • Make dinner—everyone contributes a dish
    • Make a family calendar
    • Read a book aloud (book lists are available at the library)
    • Write letters to grandparents or other family members
    • Draw or paint a picture
    • Learn how to use a compass
    • Pull out your old records, tapes, CDs, then listen to and discuss music
    • Tell stories from your family history
    • Go to the library
    • Bake bread
    • Start a family journal
    • Sing
