El Librotazo, the big book party logo

Chesterfield County Public Schools invites all students and families to El Librotazo, the big book party. El Librotazo is brand new, so you may wonder, “What is it?”

El Librotazo will take place 5-8:30 p.m. July 9 at the Chesterfield County Fairgrounds (10300 Courthouse Road). Every child can choose up to five books to keep. That’s right: Every child from birth through high school will get books for their home libraries. That’s why this is a big book party!

El Librotazo is free. Thanks to support by the Chesterfield Education Foundation and Dominion Energy, there is no cost to attend, take home books or enjoy fun and food at El Librotazo. Families are asked to register by July 1 for free tickets at bit.ly/CCPSlibro.

Books for all ages will be available in English, Spanish, Arabic, Vietnamese, Pashto and Dari. But books are just one part of El Librotazo:

  • An obstacle course and big inflatables will be available, along with crafts led by the Children’s Museum of Richmond and games led by Chesterfield Parks and Recreation.

  • Music and cultural performances will add to the fun.

  • Hot dogs, popsicles and popcorn will be served.

  • A fire truck and police vehicle will be there for children to see.

  • About 20 community groups will provide helpful information for families.
