Friends to Co-Host Children’s Learning & Play Festival September 9

The Friends of the Scottsdale Public Library are once again excited to be partnering on the Children’s Learning & Play Festival, set for September 9 at WestWorld in Scottsdale from 9am to 4pm.

Children's Learning & Play FestivalLast year’s inaugural event drew over 12,000 attendees for a day of children’s activities including authors and illustrators, S.T.E.M. programming and a play zone with games, arts and crafts.

The Friends are once again sponsoring the authors and illustrators, which last year included Marc Brown, author of the Arthur the Aardvark book series that was adapted into a PBS children’s show. This year, authors will be selling and signing copies of their books thanks to a partnership with Barnes & Noble, who will be processing all transactions and donating a percentage of sales of the Friends.

Just like last year, the Festival is free of charge for all attendees, and will be indoors and air-conditioned. Parking will be $5, and we are requesting a non-perishable food donation to support the Vista Del Camino Food Bank.

This year’s Children’s & Learning Festival is presented by Tuft & Needle.
