Join Bookstock, a Family Celebration of Books, Music, and Fun in Redwood City

Redwood City, CA - August 31 , 2005 - Thirty-six years ago, the Woodstock festival offered “three days of peace and music”…today, the Redwood City Public Library is hosting their own 21st-century version of Woodstock, called Bookstock: a Grandparent / Parent / Child Experience: 3 Hours of Peace & Music. It’s a free, fun, family event taking place on Saturday, September 10 from 11 am until 2 pm. Bookstock brings wonderful music and entertainment for the whole family at the Downtown Library, located at 1044 Middlefield Road.

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young were not available for Redwood City’s event, so the featured musical act for Bookstock is The Sippy Cups, a rock band of local moms and dads, performing their special selection of songs from the 60s and 70s. The Sippy Cups are popular throughout the Bay Area, wowing audiences with their zany performance, which includes unicycles, creative lyrics, juggling, and audience participation. The songs themselves grab children’s attention and resonate with parents...and grandparents!

Other events include sale of tie-dyed shirts, face painting, more music, spin art, food vendors, and a lot more. And of course kids, parents, and grandparents can get a library card if they don’t already have one, and take advantage of the library’s wonderful collection of books, CDs, videos, DVDs and other materials.

The Redwood City Public Library sponsors many free programs for children, families, and adults and strives to be the learning center of the community. More information about library events and services, and the Foundation, is available on the library’s home page at, by calling 780-7026, or by picking up a Library events calendar in any Redwood City library.
