Looking for Something to Do?

Wednesday, March 2, at 1 p.m. -- This week’s film in the Donald R. Wright Auditorium at Pasadena Central Library is “To Kill a Mockingbird” (1962, NR) starring Gregory Peck, Brock Peters and Robert Duvall in the story of attorney Atticus Finch who defends an innocent black man against rape charges.

Wednesday, March 2, at 4 p.m. – Children and their families are invited to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday with musical guest Billy Brockman at Hastings Branch Library.

Through March 3 -- If you or someone you know may qualify as a junior lifeguard for our summer aquatics program or a PWP electrical engineering aide, we're hiring!

Through March 8 -- If you don’t want to wait for City of Pasadena and/or PUSD Board of Education elections, come to room S208 at Pasadena City Hall during regular business hours. You can vote early here, even if you live in Altadena or Sierra Madre and are voting for board of education seats only.


This year’s One City, One Story novel in Pasadena is Mudbound by Hillary Jordan that takes place in Mississippi during World War II. Related events are planned through March 31.

Here are related events taking place next week:

Saturday, March 5, at 11 a.m. – Theatre Americana, formed as part of President Franklin Roosevelt’s WPA program, salutes our veterans with music of the ‘30s and ‘40s at Hastings Branch Library that will take you on a sentimental journey through a history of USO camp shows.

Saturday, March 5, at 11:30 a.m. – Old Town Cooking School’s Deb Swartz will demonstrate Southern cooking at Allendale Branch Library with traditional recipes that will make your mouth water (and you’ll get to sample everything!).

Saturday, March 5, at 2 p.m. – See a special screening of the film “The Tuskegee Airmen” (1995, PG) starring Laurence Fishburne, Allen Payne and Malcolm-Jamal Warner at San Rafael Branch Library. The film portrays the true story of the 332nd Air Force squadron during World War II that was honored for keeping casualties low and bombers safe. The squadron also made history because its members were the first African American pilots to take to the skies for the U.S., though few Americans knew of their accomplishments or how they managed to serve in the face of the rampant racism they endured. (626) 744-7270.

All events listed above are free and open to the public.
