16th Annual Claire’s Day

Join us for a spectacular day at the Maumee branch, Toledo-Lucas County Public Library as we celebrate life, authors, illustrators and reading excellence.

Claire’s Day is Northwest Ohio’s largest children’s book festival! Celebrating the life of Claire Lynsey Rubini who passed away at age 10. This 14 year old tradition grows each year as more than 6,000 people venture to Maumee to join in the fun! Claire’s Day shares Claire’s love of reading with children and families.

When you join us you will be able to

  • Meet children’s authors, illustrators and storytellers!
  • Enjoy live music, hands-on craft area (all free)
  • Participate in fun activities at the park
  • Visit the Barnes & Noble Book Sale area, purchase books and then have the author or illustrator sign your book for you!
  • Purchase food, t-shirts and other fun book items.

It really is all FREE thanks to our generous donors! But bring along money for food, beverages, t-shirts and book purchases!
