Friday at the People’s Library

Happy Friday from the People’s Library! Come visit us in front of the Douglass-Truth Library in the Central District, at the corner of 23rd and Yesler. Bring your family, neighbors, and friends!

Arts, crafts, and games will be available for kids all day, including materials for kids to WRITE THEIR OWN STORY! Today, we  are hoping many children will write and draw in these blank books and share their creation with the Library at 2 and 6pm storytime!

Today, we are also happy to debut BUTTON MAKING! Kids (of all ages) can design their own buttons using materials provided.

We do not have anyone scheduled to provide live music tonight. If you would like to play for the Library, please leave a comment here or email All styles of music are welcome! We had a fantastic time hearing (and learning to play!) fandango- style music on Wednesday and are looking forward to more live music.
