    Claire's Day is THIS Saturday!

    Claire’s Day, Northwest Ohio’s Children’s Book Festival comes to Maumee, Ohio this year on May 21 from 9am – 5pm for what might be one of the largest for the 15 year old event. Fifteen authors, illustrators and storytellers will embark on our community to share their love of literacy, children and family. Held annually in honor of Claire Rubini who passed away from a heart condition in 2000 when she was just ten years old, the event embraces her favorite activities making crafts, dancing, and above all, reading! You are invited! Click the image to see the schedule for Claire's Day, Saturday, May 21 from 9am - 5pm at the Maumee Library.
