Enjoy BOOKSTOCK, a Family Celebration of Books, Music, and Fun in Redwood City

Redwood City, CA - August 2 , 2007– In 1969, the Woodstock festival offered “three days of peace and music”…today, the Redwood City Public Library is once again hosting its own 21 st century version of Woodstock, called Bookstock 3 – three hours of peace, music, crafts, books, food, and fun! This great, free family event takes place on Saturday, August 18 from 1 to 4 pm. Bookstock 3, building on the success of its two previous years, brings wonderful music, entertainment and activities for the whole family at the Downtown Library, located at 1044 Middlefield Road.

Jimi Hendrix is not available for Bookstock 3, so the featured musical act this year is The Daffy Dave Band, which has played their silly hits and popular tunes for kids and parents alike since 1992. Daffy Dave performs his magic and music shows at Bay Area art and wine festivals, cultural centers, libraries, and schools. For the last seven years running, Daffy Dave has been voted “Number One Children’s Entertainer” in the Bay Area by the readers of Bay Area Parent Magazine.

Sharing the stage will be the Andy Z Band, headed up by Andy Zamenes, an acoustic guitar-playing Redwood City native. His most recent album, "Welcome to Andyland," earned the Parents ' Choice Foundation 's "Recommended" award last summer.

Other activities include crafts, food vendors, giveaways, and book sales by the Friends of the Redwood City Public Library. And of course kids, parents, and grandparents can get a free library card if they don’t already have one, and take advantage of the library’s wonderful collection of books, CDs, videos, DVDs and other materials.

The Redwood City Public Library sponsors many free programs for children, families, and adults. More information about library events and services, and the Redwood City Library Foundation, is available by calling 780-7026, by visiting the Library’s web page at, or by picking up library information in any Redwood City public library.
