Attention Kids: Welcome to Loompaland

Children of all ages will find something to love at the 13th Annual Collingswood Book Festival! Loompaland kids zone is a whole block teeming with inter-active, fun activities that will keep kids busy for the entire day. This special area includes readings and book signings by several children's book authors as well as puppet shows, storytelling, and musical performances. Visit the craft tent where the Collingswood library ladies will help kids make a variety of literary related crafts. The ever popular "paper making lady" and the Garden State Discovery Museum, "Put Yourself in a Bubble" will be back again this year. Fifteen additional exhibitors will be doing hands-on activities and giving out "take-away" souvenirs to the children. Check the Schedule of Events page for the complete list of exhibitors and activities.

Bring the kids and enjoy a fun filled free adventure!
