Library in Historical/Hysterical Parade

Historical/Hysterical ParadeVolunteers Needed

Due to the great response from the crowds, the Friends of the Library are hosting the second annual Library/Woman’s Club entry in the Historical/Hysterical Parade - Desfile de la Gente on Sunday, September 12. The Parade starts at 1:00 p.m., but volunteers would need to be there earlier to get into the line up.

So what does one do in this parade? Volunteers walk with election-style signs that have quotes on them like, I Love the Library! 82,000 library card holders can’t be wrong! Support your local libraries!

The Library received cheers from those assembled along the parade route as the librarians and friends waved their signs and handed out candy. AND you can dress as your favorite book character!

The walk is from DeVargas Mall to the Plaza and back. This year it is suggested people team up so that one person walks to the Plaza and meets up with their partner and the other person walks back to De Vargas Mall.

Friends and family are encouraged to take part. If you are interested, contact the Friends at

Come and join in the fun!
