      Features:

      Ghost Tour - Have you heard that there are ghosts in Columbia? Join them on the tour to find out where they lurk and the stories behind those who lived in Columbia during the Gold Rush.

      Columbia State Historic Park — once a bustling, brawling gold rush town — sits at an elevation of 2,100 feet amongst the oaks of the Sierra Nevada foothills. In the mid 1800's, the town of Columbia was one of the largest cities in California, attracting people from other US states as well as other countries with promises of gold. In fact, between 1850 and the early 1900s, as much as $150 million in gold was mined in Columbia.

      As deposits of gold dwindled, Columbia itself began to fall into a state of disrepair. Miners nearly cannibalized the town, tearing down vacated buildings to mine even the ground the town stood on. In 1945, the state of California acquired the town, making it a state park and began renovating the remaining buildings and rebuilding as needed to preserve the historic value of Columbia.

      Today, Columbia State Historic Park has the largest single collection of gold-rush-era structures making the town an authentic, living mid-nineteenth century history lesson for visitors. Children will thoroughly enjoy gold panning at the Hidden Treasure Gold Mine (located at the south end of the Main Street), the Columbia Candy Kitchen (Main Street, south of State Street) where the walls are lined with old-fashioned confectionary treats, bowling down wooden pins with wooden balls on an uneven wooden plank lane at the Bowling Saloon (Main Street, north of State Street), Candle Dipping in the Garden Courtyard (Main Street, south of State Street), and walking through the small Columbia Museum (Main Street & State Street) where authentic weapons, personal care, household and schoolhouse goods are exhibited. On Main Street, visitors will find restaurants, a coffee & sweets shop, a child-friendly saloon and more.

      Special events are held throughout the year, but the park is open everyday of the year aside from Thanksgiving and Christmas days, 10am - 5pm.

      Ends: October 26, 2014 - 8:30 pm
      Location: Turlock Community Theatre, E. Canal Drive, Turlock
      Description: Terry Fator became a household name in 2007 when he won Season 2 of “America’s Got Talent” with his unique brand of entertainment that combines singing, comedy, and unparalleled celebrity impressions. After 25 years of honing his skills at country fairs and venues across the country, the Dallas-bred entertainer’s big “AGT” win at age 42 catapulted him into the upper echelon of entertainers, landing him at No. 2 on Forbes’ list of the top-earning comics behind Jerry Seinfeld in 2013. The feat is due largely to his multi-million dollar deal with the Mirage Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas where his award-winning show, “Terry Fator: The VOICE of Entertainment,” has been running since 2009. With a cast of characters including Winston, the Impersonating Turtle; Emma Taylor, the little girl with the big voice; Maynard Tompkins, the Elvis Impersonator; Duggie Scott Walker, the annoying neighbor and many others, Fator has been raking in awards, accolades, and industry admiration ever since. Within the last year, Fator has released a DVD “Terry Fator: Live In Concert,” a country music CD “It Starts Tonight,” as well as a series of children’s books including Lamu, The Christmas Kitten.

      Description: This month's selection is Blue Heaven by C. J. Box. A twelve-year-old girl and her younger brother go on the run in the woods of northern Idaho, pursued by four men they have just watched commit murder—four men who know exactly who the children are, and where their desperate mother is waiting patiently by the phone for news of her children’s fate. In a ranching community increasingly populated by L.A. transplants living in gaudy McMansions, the kids soon find they don’t know whom they can trust among the hundreds of retired Southern California cops who’ve given the area its nickname: “Blue Heaven.” A limited number of copies of the book are available at the library. For more information contact the Turlock Library Reference Desk at 664-8100. Book clubs allow community members to expand their knowledge of books and other reading material through meaningful discussions with others.
