Reading Rendezvous

In partnership with Anchorage Public Libraries since 2001

This outdoor reading fair kicks off the Anchorage Public Library’s Summer Reading Program. Held in mid-May on the grounds of the Z.J. Loussac Library in Anchorage, Reading Rendezvous offers families free activities and entertainment while kids sign up for the summer reading program. Dozens of local groups supporting literacy and literature promote their programs with book giveaways, book-related crafts, and other fun activities.

In 2023, Reading Rendezvous will be held on May 20, noon to 4:00 pm.

In Alaska, May is still early Spring, but this year we enjoyed a warm, sunny day.
In 2011 a heavy, wet snow the day before Reading Rendezvous forced a move into the library for the first indoors event.
