In partnership with Anchorage Municipal Libraries
This outdoor reading fair at the Loussac Library grounds, celebrates the written and spoken word and is the kick-off for the Anchorage Municipal Libraries Summer Reading Program. Kids can sign up for the Summer Reading Program and the whole family can enjoy free activities and entertainment. Local groups supporting literacy and literature promote their programs with book giveaways, book-related crafts and other fun activities. Friends of Pets co-sponsors the event, providing educational activities and a diverse array of animals including hamsters, parrots, dogs and miniature horses.
In 2011 a heavy, wet snow the day before Reading Rendezvous forced a move into the library for the first indoors event.
