8th Annual Claire’s Day, May 16

Claire’s Day is a free family book festival held annually in honor of Claire Lynsey Rubini, who passed away from a heart condition in 2000, when she was just ten years old. Claire’s Day embraces all of her favorite activities, including telling stories, dancing, making crafts, but most of all, reading.

The Claire's Day Inc. mission is to inspire children of all ages and their families to be lifelong readers through exposure to a variety of literary opportunities and experiences.
Claire’s Day is held on the third Saturday in May at the Maumee branch of the Toledo Lucas County Public Library, 501 River Road.  This year's event will take place on Saturday, May 16, 2009.

The Claire's Day book festival features children's book authors and illustrators from around the country.  The authors and illustrators meet with young readers to discuss their craft and sign their books.  The day also includes storytellers, live music, and hands-on activities. 

A highlight of the day is the C.A.R.E. Awards (Claire’s Awards for Reading Excellence), which are presented to students recognized by their schools as being the most improved in their reading skills.  Principals from the greater Toledo area may nominate students in grades 1-8 for the awards.
Claire’s Night will occur on Friday, May 15 in the childrens'section, Main Library in downtown Toledo; from 7-10 PM.  Tickets are $65 per person. Guests can meet participating authors and illustrators, purchase  their books and have them personally signed, as well as enjoy scrumptious food, complimentary beverages and music.  Hidden Ohio, a children's book written by Claire's Day Founder, Julie K. Rubini, will also be released that evening.
