Kids Create is a day of workshops, music, activities, and refreshments just for kids ages 0 to 10 and their parents and guardians. It’s free and open to the public, and is a great way to engage with your child through reading, writing, play, and dance.

Kids Create begins with a set of hour-long creative writing workshops. We offer three age-appropriate workshops simultaneously, serving children aged 0 through 10. Adults may select the workshop that works best for their child. Workshops are designed to be fun and playful. Arrive a little before 10:00 a.m., when workshops start, to register! After the workshops, we offer a breakfast concert featuring healthy food, coffee, and live local music that can be enjoyed by kids and adults alike. Drop-in writing activities, games, and typewriters are scattered throughout the library and available for use until the library closes.

This Kids Create is a celebration of Brave Books 2019-2020: Casa Camino Real & Literature of the US-Mexico Borderlands. It will feature a drumming workshop led by Quiahuitl Villegas and food from Tania's 33. Attendees are encouraged to bring hopeful, uplifting books for children and adults in Spanish, Portuguese, and bilingual editions to donate to our Libros Para el Viaje Tucson book drive. The books will be donated to hospitality centers for refugees and asylum seekers around Tucson. 

Kids Create is not a drop-off program. All children must be supervised by a parent, guardian, or accompanying adult at all times.
