We always love celebrating our library’s anniversary with our Hoboken Community, but this year’s celebration on Saturday, October 3 is extra special since we are streaming it online we can have our friends all across the world attend!  Below are the authors who are participating and where Hoboken residents can borrow some of their works.

Join us on Facebook, at 11 AM on Saturday, when Hoboken Children’s Book Authors Patricia Keeler and Francis McCall have an amazing story time and drawing demo planned! You can borrow Patricia Keeler’s book, Lizzie and Lou Seal from Hoopla.  You can borrow A Huge Hog is a Big Pig a Rhyming Word Game from BCCLS libraries.

Also on Facebook, at 12:20 will be a delicious chocolate presentation for all ages from Maricel Presilla, James Beard Award Winner & Chocolate Connoisseur.  You can check out her books Gran Cocina Latina: The Food of Latin America and The New Taste of Chocolate from Hoboken and other BCCLS libraries.

All are streaming on Facebook (you do not have to have a Facebook account yourself to view the event) except for the Tiffany D.
