Celebration Activities!

Meet the Author

Anthony D. Fredericks will be in person to engage with youth and sign copies of his book Tall Tall Tree. Tony brings a special charm and excitement to the reading world! You don’t want to miss him!


Stations will be set up for youth to explore! These include a photo booth, an interactive coloring station, and more!

We’ll also have a special guest:
DownTown from the York Revolution

DownTown has a challenge for every first grader. He wants to see who can kick a soccer ball into a goal!

There’s a catch: he’s playing goalie! Can you score a point on DownTown? Come find out during our celebration!
