Concord Library joins National Night Out celebration

The Concord Library is joining the National Night Out celebration on Tuesday, Aug. 2 from 6 to 8 p.m. National Night Out is a national community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make neighborhoods safer and better places to live.

In Concord, National Night Out is celebrated with a variety of neighborhood events such as block parties, barbeques, movie nights, and ice cream socials. Concord Police Officers and staff will be visiting and celebrating with participating neighborhoods.

"Please come to the Concord Library to show your community spirit and support our community," says Senior Community Library Manager Kimberli Buckley.

"The library staff is planning some really fun activities. Here's a little sample - we'll have games and activities for kids and grown-ups, face painting, make your own ice cream, free cotton candy, button making and we hope to have live music. We will also be closing off our parking lot for a Bike Rodeo, so children and their families are encouraged to bike over to our event and try out our bike safety obstacle course. We will also be getting a visit from our wonderful Concord Police and Contra Costa Fire Departments! We hope to see you at our National Night Out event," Buckley said.

For more information, contact the library staff at (925) 646-5455.
