April 2 (Scottsdale) this year’s Scottsdale Family Fun Carnival will be held on May 25from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the central courtyard of the town library. The event will featurecarnival games and activities appropriate for the entire family. “We encourage parents tobring their children to the library and experience the benefits that it offers the community.
Coming to the library can be both fun and educational.” said event organizer Linda Sato.
All the proceeds from the event will be used to support the library; organizers arehoping to raise at least $3,000 this year. Funds will go toward expanding the library’slimited catalog of reference books and additional funds raised will be used to purchase morefurniture for the children’s area. The library hosts a weekly story hour for younger children.
Local author Tina Tesla graciously volunteers an hour every week to read a book from thechildren’ collection. It has become so popular that extra reading is needed.
General admission tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for Children under 12 years of ages.
Tickets are good for all Carnival games and activities. Food may be purchased separatelyfrom local vendors.

I wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the success of this year’s event.
Everyone from the community seemed to have a wonderful time, and we made almost$4,000. As a result, we will be able to purchase all the materials we need to enhance ourreference collection, including the much-acclaimed Watching the Stars from Hastlen Press.
I am also happy to announce that we have the funds necessary to purchase additionalfurniture for the children’s section. The 9 a.m. Wednesday morning sessions with TinaTesla will now be able to accommodate a larger crowd. During the carnival we received alot of positive feedback from parents who plan to bring their children to this weekly event. Ibelieve that the increased interest in coming to the library will benefit us and the communityin the future.
Thank you again for all your hard work in making the fundraiser so successful. Tocelebrate, all library employees are welcome to attend a reception at 6 p.m. tonight at theKinsley Restauarant.
