Enjoy fun in the sun with Albany Public Library at the fourth annual SummerFest outdoor family party on Saturday, July 13, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Delaware Branch (331 Delaware Avenue).
This free outdoor party features bounce houses, activities, games and prizes, music, and snacks.
SummerFest is the major event in the library’s Summer Reading Program, which encourages literacy by rewarding kids for reading.
SummerFest activities include:
- Bounce houses and activity centers
- Games and prizes
- Music and magic
- Hula hoops, sidewalk chalk, and other fun activities
- Snow cones and popcorn
- Summer snacks provided by Price Chopper
The SummerFest party is so big that the library is closing all branches—except for Delaware and the Main Library—on July 13.
The Delaware Avenue neighborhood is also participating in the day’s festivities with a street fair, special sales at many businesses, food and activity booths, and a garage sale.
This year’s Summer Reading Program is sponsored by Price Chopper, Friends of Albany Public Library, and Stewart’s Shops.
