Local Youth Author Fair
The public is welcome to meet and greet authors; an adult caregiver must accompany children who plan to attend.
Many local authors who have written books for preschoolers will be sharing their books in a storytime setting.
Snacks will be provided.
Kids Book Tasting
A Kids Book Tasting event geared primarily for kindergarten through fifth-grade readers will occur in the Teen area during the author fair.
A book tasting is simply an opportunity for participants to learn about and sample new books, genres or authors that they might not consider otherwise.
Registration is not required for either event.
