For one day this weekend, Tucson’s downtown will be transformed into Story Town!
The 9th Annual Story Town Festival is this Saturday, November 3, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the Jácome Plaza in front of the Joel D. Valdez Main Library, 101 N. Stone Avenue. The live story performances, music, dancing, and costumed storybook characters promise a great time for families as we celebrate the joy of books and reading with children from birth to five. The event is free and open to the public.
Visit Story Town neighborhoods like Literacy Lane, Fairytale Trail, Book Walk, and Downtown. Stop by Art Alley to make crafts, catch amazing dance performances on Rhythm Road, and check out the live-action performances of favorite children’s books on Storybook Lane. Storytimes and mini-workshops are happening throughout the day in the Book Nook.
Invite your family, friends, and neighbors, too. Story Town is one stop you won’t want to miss!
Food and refreshments will be available for purchase. Parking is free in the garage under the Main Library.
Story Town is sponsored by the Pima County Public Library, MAKE WAY FOR BOOKS, Altrusa International, Inc. of Tucson, Boston Market and the Friends of the Pima County Public Library.
