The Sacramento Public Library's Community Outreach Services was once again out in full force at the 7th Annual Target Children's Book Celebration held at Fairytale Town in Sacramento's beautiful William Land Park. The event was held on September 29/30 from 10 am to 4pm where hundreds of families attended numerous stage performances with likes of Francie Dillon , children's storyteller Michael Katz , Ke Buena 97.9 DJ's Lili and Ricardo Reyes ( Spanish - Language Storytime ) and renowned author Laura Numeroff.
Other attendees were KVIE's own "Ready to Learn" kids mobile, Friends of the Sacramento Public Library, and SPL's own Wonder Wagon. Volunteers made many children ( and their parents ) very happy encouraging them to sign up for their very first library card! Community Outreach Volunteers also informed the public about the
benefits of reading to children, reading frequently and about the power of imagination!
It's my participation in events like these ( aside from the other things that I do with library! ) that make me proud to work for Sacramento Public Library and Community Outreach Events. Please feel free to visit my Flickr site and see more photographs taken at the Children's Book Celebration!
