Late spring is when the phone calls and chat questions start trickling in, first one by one, then in a chorus: “You’re having the summer reading thing again this year, right?” “My kids LOVE Extravaganza–please say you’re doing it.” “Will there be another festival on the library lawn?” Yes, yes, and yes!
This year is lucky number 13 for the Summer Reading Extravaganza, which is brought to you by the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh and a host of other sponsors, including EQT, the Allegheny Regional Asset District, and Giant Eagle (click here and scroll down to see just how many community groups pitch in to help us make this event a stellar one). The celebration of reading will take place:
Sunday, June 9, 2013
12 – 5 pm
On the lawn at
CLP – Main (Oakland)
and will include fun activities for the whole family, including:
- designing your own Smiley cookie with Eat’n Park.
- a plethora of perfomances by local musical groups.
- activities and information tables from friendly neighborhood community organizations.
- food trucks, food trucks, food trucks!
- library workers connecting you with books, information, and resources.
- and much, much more!
Once again the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh will offer summer reading programs for kids
you’ll need to register in order to enjoy the festivities to the fullest.*
However you choose to participate, we hope you’ll make the 2013 Summer Reading Extravaganza, and the 2013 Summer Reading Program, a part of your warm-weather fun again this year. Grab your library card and dig deeply into the wonder and magic of a day at the library, followed by a summer of reading bliss.
*On-site registration will be available the day of the event
