Saturday: Friends of Library celebrate reading


The 16th annual Celebration of Reading will be held from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, May 1, at Kepler's Books, 1010 El Camino Real in Menlo Park.

The day begins with a performance by fourth-grade orchestras from Oak Knoll and Encinal schools.

Musical performances will proceed progressively through the grades until around 1:30 p.m. The finale will be entertainment by the Menlo-Atherton jazz and concert bands.

The free event is co-sponsored by Friends of the Menlo Park Library. Kepler's will donate a percentage of purchases that day if the buyer says "It's for the library." Belle Haven Library will be the beneficiary.

Raffle tickets will be sold, and prizes will be gift certificates from local businesses. The proceeds from the raffle will go to Oak Knoll, Hillview, and Encinal schools.
