“After postponing during the pandemic, we are eager to invite everyone to celebrate this milestone with us as we originally envisioned,” said Mike Miller, the Executive Director of Rosenberg Library.
This free event will host a wide variety of family-friendly entertainment and activities including live music from The Line Up, The Friends of the Library book sale, a book festival featuring ten well known Galveston authors, food and treats from The Bourbon Bayou food truck, Odyssey Academy Coffee Cart, and the Scoop Craft Creamery food truck, a petting zoo and face painting for the kids, a Rosenberg Library salvage sale, and a special ribbon cutting with Galveston Regional Chamber of Commerce.

“We have many activities planned to help celebrate books, reading, and the rich history of Rosenberg Library,” said Miller. “You can even purchase a piece of the library’s history from us at the salvage sale. You might go home with a chair that used to sit in Children’s, or a display case the museum used to use. Visitors may recognize many of the items we have on sale.”
Parking will be available behind the library facing Ball Street (Avenue H) and along 23rd and 24th streets. Sealy at 23rd and 24th will be closed during the event.
