Music and Family Fun with The Sippy Cups & The Fourth Grade Dads at Redwood City Public Library’s Bookstock 2- Back by Popular Demand!

Redwood City, CA - August 11, 2006 - Woodstock festival offered “three days of peace and music”…today the Redwood City Public Library cordially invites families back again to their own 21st-century version of Woodstock, called Bookstock 2: 3 Hours of Peace & Music. Bookstock 2 is a repeat of last year’s hugely successful event and takes place Saturday, August 19, from 1:00 pm until 4:00 pm at the Downtown Library, located at 1044 Middlefield Road. The event is free and all activities take place in the park next to the Library.

The Sippy Cups, a pop-rock band of local moms and dads headline performing their special selection of songs from the 60s and 70s. The Sippy Cups perform regularly throughout the Bay Area, wowing audiences with their music and antics, which include unicycles, circus stunts, large-scale puppets, and audience participation. The songs themselves grab children’s attention and resonate with parents...and grandparents!

Sharing the stage this year are The Fourth Grade Dads, a band of Redwood City dads whose children are all in the fourth grade in Mt. Carmel Elementary School in Redwood City. Their extensive play list includes something to please absolutely everyone!

Other events include sale of tie-dyed shirts, face painting, 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, DVDs, and other materials.

This is just one of the many free programs for children, adults, and families offered by the Redwood City Public Library - the learning center of our community. For more information about library events and services visit the library’s web page at or call 780-7017.
