Children’s Book Week Kick-off at the NYPL!

Join us as we kick-off the most wonderful time of the year!

Come to the Jefferson Market Library on Sunday, May 1 to kick-off Children’s Book Week, the annual celebration of children’s books and the joy of reading.

Kids ages 5 to 12 and their families are invited to participate in age-based activities including a picture book “Story Ball” where kids create the story along with illustrators; and a rousing game of Trivia where authors pair up with kids from the audience to answer questions about their favorite books! There will be a super fun yoga session followed by crafts for all ages.

Stick around to meet the authors and illustrators, get your books signed, and have your picture taken with a very special and “Curious” guest (hint: his best friend wears a big yellow hat)! Book sales provided by neighborhood indie bookstore, Books of Wonder!

The library is opening early just for you! Join us from 11am to 1pm and meet some of your favorite authors and illustrators including Phil Bildner, Nick Bruel, Sarah Beth Durst, Alan Katz, Nancy Krulik, Kevin Lewis, Meghan McCarthy, Sesame Street’s Louis Henry Mitchell, Eric Velasquez, and Susan Verde!

This event is free and open to the public!
