Join us every year for our special events, including Book Sales, Cedar Park Reads, Summer Reading, and Fable Fest!
This year marks the sixth year for what has become one of the most highly regarded events in Cedar Park. The Cedar Park Library Foundation’s Fable Fest takes place Saturday November 1st, 2014 from 12:00 to 6:00pm at the Elizabeth Milburn Park.
The one day event offers a complete showcase of drama, music, art, and storytelling. Funds raised from the event’s sponsors, vendors and activities will benefit the Cedar Park Public Library by paying for reading programs, advanced technologies and expanding the current library collections for years to come.
Attractions and entertainment at this year’s Fable Fest include; The Kings Carnival where kids of all ages can play games, arts and crafts, enjoy inflatables, a petting zoo and pony rides (requires tickets purchased at event); The Cobblestone Market provides the opportunity to shop with a variety of Arts and Craft vendors and other area merchants; The Troubadours Court will host an exciting line up of performances from area schools and professional performers; The Pig’s Pub will provide an opportunity to eat your fill on foods of all kinds; and The Royal Academy which is home to demonstrations of Jousting, Archery, Fencing and other Kingdom sports.

2014 Summer Reading Club is a Success!
Thanks to all our patrons who participated in the Summer Reading Club this year! We had a great summer filled with fun events and, of course, lots and lots of reading.
We had a fantastic number of readers participate in our Summer Reading Club. This year, 2,202 kids, 384 teens, and 806 adults signed up for a total of 3,392 Cedar Park readers.
We also had lots of fun at our weekly toddler and preschool performers. Whether dancing and singing with Mr. Johnny and Friends or going on safari with Miss Elizabeth, the little ones had a great time bopping along to our special performances. Almost every show was a packed house!
And don’t forget the elementary-aged programs! This year we had an awesome variety of shows. From the amazing magic of John O’Bryant to the comedy improv stylings of the Flying Theatre Machine, our K-5th grade readers had tons of fun at all our performances.
Our teens also had a lot of fun this summer between Teen Book Club, Anime Club and our gaming events. We had a smashing Super Smash Brothers Brawl tournament, a murder mystery, and a Superheroes Assemble! Party.
This year was also the second year for our Just for Tweens program for kids in grades 4-6. They did an awesome variety of activities, from yoga to improv to DIY crafts. Everyone had a ton of fun!
The Summer Reading Club came to a close at our annual picnic at Milburn Park. We had lots of folks in attendance and everyone had a great time watching juggler Amazing Aaron. Winners of the drawing prizes were announced, as were the winners of our Fable Fest court. Here are the winners:
