Summer Reading Program Includes re:Maker Fair

The all-ages Summer Reading Program runs from May 20-Aug. 31 and is one of the Palo Alto City Library’s most popular annual events. This year’s theme of “re:Make Your Community” was inspired by conversations between the Library and members of the Palo Alto community to explore ways we can engage with our neighbors and cultivate an engaged, inclusive, and welcoming community.

Back by popular demand is the very popular BINGO activity card, where participants are encouraged to get out and explore Palo Alto, earning badges for each activity they complete. Prizes this year include tote bags featuring custom artwork designed by local illustrator, Michael Slack, as well as a Book Bucks coupon and a free paperback book from the Friends of the Palo Alto Library. 

In addition to the Summer Reading Program, the Library will be hosting a “re:Maker Fair” on Saturday, June 23 to highlight sustainable technology and green practices. This free event for all ages will bring together local organizations, artists, and businesses for an afternoon of interactive activities, presentations, and workshops on sustainable home living. The fair will be held at the Mitchell Park Library and Community Center from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Other summer reading events will include a Neighborhood Block Party at the College Terrace Library on July 21, and a Summer Reading Program Prize Pick-Up Party at the Rinconada Library on August 4. 

The Summer Reading Program is sponsored by Friends of the Palo Alto Library, Ada's Cafe, Rick's Ice Cream, and Michael Slack, Illustrator. For more information, click here
