This current facility opened on January 17, 2006, after a total renovation and 15,000 sq. ft. expansion. The public now has access to dozens of electronic workstations, wireless computer access, a large community room, and a Children's Story time room.

I got married and have been working on several editing projects...

I am planing a "Sparky the Wonderfish: Hope and Literacy Tour" (and documentary). We will use this "story of how love creates magic" to help rebuild the opportunities of literacy along the New Orleans disaster areas. Our project is aimed toward the educational wants and needs of the children effected by these disasters. I will read, conduct Q&A's... the kids will receive Sparky stickers, they will do coloring pages, interactive games and meet Sparky (costume)! I will donate books & supplies that the children need. We intend for Sparky to reach at least schools, libraries and hospitals. We also plan a Music Festival Fundraiser which will conclude this tour in New Orleans Parish next year.
This SPARKY PROJECT will raise money to rebuild at least one new green school and library room devoted to this literacy program. Upon completion of this project, Sparky will leave behin an agenda for mentoring students to read & write, play and interact with books for years to come!
Help me HELP those in need!
I am looking for sponsors and investors who want to help make this dream come true -- and the dreams of children. Please contact me!

I had a wonderful, fun time reading Sparky and coloring Sparky the Wonderfish with kindergarten kids in Pasadena at 8:00AM on Tuesday March 2nd for Dr. Seuss's Birthday celebration! I also gave them Sparky stickers and postcards and all the kids wanted me to autograph everything. We all had a really great morning. I think Dr. Seuss would have liked it!
