recap of today

there was a lot of green cross over as we have only hours now to the parade.  So if you come late you will miss it.  If you come early you get to hang out. 2 Times have been bantered around  Line up is 10;30  parade starts 11:00, city website has start time noon.

DSCN3981It being Saturday the morning belongs to the kids and Retro Jetro, will do a more about that phenomena soon.  So ,who found the first Retro Jetro car this morning, the biggest kid in Lake Worth Beach pictured right here.  He enjoyed being the first to find it as much as the kids.   This was also the day that the Friends of the LW Library had their  big enormous book sale.  Also downtown sidewalk sale was going on.

The Friends of the LW Library under new President Sam Goodstein tried something a bit different as it is reaching out to the younger populations, not just  adults. Parrot  Cove resident John Cutrone brought some unusual books from the Jaffee Book Arts Collection that he oversees at FAU.  quite a few ohhs and ahhhs  you’d think he was a magician as he opened the concertina book. DSCN4001DSCN4002  On hand also were several area Authors with their books.  On hand for all to see were some of the Little Libraries that will soon make an appearance around our fair city.   DSCN4023 Located at the Front Porch  which became quite a gathering spot for those seeking a comfy chair or cover from heat. What a fabulous addition the Front  has become to any event on the Cultural Plaza.  Book as art was introduced in a  fun way.

The Hedgehog, each child that wished to make one was able to.  DSCN4015Dad here didn’t get exactly what she was searching for but humored her.  Till he saw she found the VW.  then it was clear, but he still does not know how she knew they were out there.

Each child was gifted with a personalized book mark and of course one for dad or for mom.  Each reader in the family had to have one.   DSCN4042While all that was going on downtown had a parade of dogs wanting to be adopted.    After a lunch break downtown and wanting to adopt dogs, the kids were back for some more activities provided by the Friends of the Lake Worth Library.  John Cutrone took time and thought them to make a book that explained how books were made from the first printing press and it’s evolution.  DSCN4036At another table Cindy our Children’s librarian was on hand with crafts and would read to anyone who wanted to hear a story.  “leprechaun” was in demand.
