2022 Minnesota Children's Book Festival

The Anderson Center needs your help at the Minnesota Children's Book Festival on Saturday, September 17. An ideal opportunity for families to connect, learn and play, this event features presentations by 8 award-winning children's authors & illustrators, along with book signings and a kids fair. The fair will feature Face-Painting by Sheila, stilting, tours to the top of the Anderson Center's landmark water tower, children's literature from the Kerlan Collection at the University of Minnesota, artmaking activities, bookmaking with ArtReach, table tennis, giant bubbles, a hands-on activity by Goodhue County Historical Society, balloon animals by David Olson, and food by Pine Island's Infuzn Food Truck. All ages are welcome!

The organization needs volunteers at both the West and East entrances to Tower View to help greet guests, distribute the festival booklet, provide direstions, and offer general assistance.

Volunteers at the Anderson Center Activity and Information Booth  will lead a youth arts activity and serve as a resource to guests; providing event and site information while also serving as safety leaders.

Historic Water Tower volunteers serve as gatekeepers ensuring safety for adult-supervised tours to the top balcony of Tower View's namesake structure.

Clean Up Crew! volunteers provide a fresh pair of legs (and arms) to help tear things down and clean up Tower View following the event.
