Super Saturday Coming To Del City Library

What is Super Saturday? 

It’s the Del City Library’s biggest event of the year, and it’s happening on September 26, 2009, from 11am to 4pm at the Del City Library, 4509 SE 15th.

“We want everyone to know,” said Del City librarian Lindsay Egle, “that in this community, the library is the place to be.  So many people come to the library when they need a specific book or piece of information and we’re good with that, but we have a lot more to offer.  That’s what Super Saturday is for.”

  The event will be indoor/outdoor celebration offered in partnership with local businesses and entertainment.  There will be food samples from local restaurants, music and performances from local artists and entertainers, and animals from the zoo.  Local artists will have crafts on display, and games and recreation organized by library staff and volunteers will also be going on.

“We’ll have storytimes for the youngest children,” Egle added, “prizes and give-aways, and I know I must be leaving something out but there will be just so much going on.

“The main thing we want people to see is that more than books and computers, our library offers a world of information and entertainment all in one place, and all for free.  The library also offers a place to have fun and interact with other citizens of our community.”

Super Saturday includes events and entertainment for library visitors of all ages.  Call 672-1377 for more information.
