Here’s How We Celebrated Children’s Book Week!

“There is no such thing as a child who hates to read; there are only children who have not found the right book.” –Frank Serafini

Children’s Book Week is the annual celebration of books for young people and the joy of reading. During the week of May 13-19, 2013, all kinds of libraries from across the country were sharing and hosting their joy of reading with children. Here at the Santa Clara City Library, we celebrated by having a friendly visit from children’s author Tim Myers who read his NEW book Down At the Dino Wash Deluxe!

Check out what The Santa Clara Weekly said about Tim Myers' visit to Santa Clara City Library.

We also had a program for all the young future writers and artists out there, as we invited those up to 6th grade to Make Your Own Book! We had writers from the horror genre, some not-so typical fairytales, and some funny stories. There were also some very talented artists who made creative picture books!

Encourage your children to read. The Summer Reading Program is coming up soon! (June 1st)

Please join us for our Summer Kickoff Party on Saturday, June 8th from 1:00-4:00pm. Festivities will be held behind the library (you can't miss it!)
