The Hoboken Public Library's 2017 Fair
 

Our 3RD BI-ANNUAL HOBOKEN LIBRARY FAIR: BUILD A BETTER WORLD was held on June 10!

Activities at the 2017 Fair included:

Featured Guest Author and Illustrator Rosemary Wells “Young Artists’ Workshop”

There is a little artist in all children. Children ages 5-12 and their caregivers attended this program that included an interactive presentation led by Rosemary Wells.

Rosemary Wells Presents: Keep Your Kids Reading this Summer! 
Adults learned how kids thrive and grow when they read and learn the joy of "book travel." A creative area for kids to color and have arts and crafts was available while adults attend the workshop.
