Please join us for a great afternoon of library programs! 

1:00 p.m. Cooking Demonstration with Adriana Lahl of Sal de Vida Gourmet, a La Cocina Incubator Business.

Learn how to make original Mexican masa creations like quesadillas, tlacoyos, sopes, and embedded flower tortillas and join us for an explanation of why 5 de Mayo is also an American holiday. Adriana is also co-author of Celebraciones Mexicanas: History, Traditions and Recipes. Her book will be available for purchase following the demonstration.

La Cocina is a groundbreaking business incubator located in San Francisco's Mission district designed to reduce the obstacles that prevent low-income food entrepreneurs from creating successful and sustainable small businesses.

This community choir for older adults is a collaboration between the San Francisco Community Music Center and the 30th St. Senior Center. The choir sings primarily in Spanish, English, and Tagalog, including many classics from Latin America.  Coro de la Treinta is directed by Martha Rodríguez-Salazar and accompanied by Jennifer Peringer.
