LAREDO, TX (KGNS) – It was a not-so-silent sight at the library as several children’s book characters came to life.
On Saturday morning, the Joe A Guerra Laredo Public Library held its Book Festival for local bookworms, specifically for the youngsters.
The festivities kicked off at 10 a.m. with a special storytime and breakfast for participants.
The event featured several authors including Laura Numeroff, the author of “If you Give a Mouse a Cookie” and Rosemary Wells, author of the “Max and Ruby” books.
It wasn’t just activities for the kids, the library also had a workshop for teens as well.
Local librarian Danielle Burns says they wanted to make sure they had activities for everyone to take part in so it can be all-inclusive.
It was the library’s way of celebrating ten years of providing literature and resources to our local community.
Kids also got a chance to dance and take pictures with the mouse from the book as well as several other characters.
The event was made possible with the help of a Texas Reads Grant.
