Founded in 1991, Sitka Babies and Books encourages Sitka children to become lifelong readers by providing books and programs for children. They emphasize parent education and support during the first few years of life, and offer a program encouraging families to read 1,000 books before Kindergarten. As part of this strategy, they offer monthly programs designed to enhance the experience of children and families alike.
Each year the Sitka Summer Music Festival partners with Sitka Babies and Books to bring guest musicians from our festival to the library for a special concert in June to expose children to classical music. This year, Trio Jinx will bring their high energy and unique sound into the mix for an engaging concert designed specifically for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and their families. This year the performance will be on June 16th at 10:30am at the Sitka Public Library.
