Top 5 by Doug Nolan
Many San Mateo County Library branches had the pleasure of hosting Doug Nolan of Rock Steady Juggling this summer. His Eco-Tainment! program was a fast-paced and exciting blend of juggling, comedy, music, magic, and environmental education.
Doug is a founding member of The Sippy Cups, an amazing local children’s pop-rock band. Their theatrical performances have gained them a huge following across the Bay Area and U.S. Check out their CDs, including The Time Machine, Electric Story-land!, and Kids Rock for Peas.
Doug’s Top 5
Doug, a local resident, frequently visits the Half Moon Bay Library with his family. I asked him to give us a Top 5 List of items he recommends folks check out from San Mateo County Libraries. He enthusiastically gave us not only an adult Top 5 List, but also a Top 5 List for Families, available on the kids blog.
4. Plays: Harold Pinter, David Mamet, and Moliere. I have an MFA in acting from the American Conservatory Theater. My favorite local companies are: SF Mime Troupe, The Cutting Ball, Berkeley Rep, and A.C.T..

Karen Choy is the temporary branch manager of the Brisbane and Atherton Libraries. She is highly impressed by Doug's ability to juggle a sword, Slinky, and bowling ball -- all at the same time!
