Parade

For many years, the library has entered a float in the Jemez Springs Fourth of July parade. Children in the Summer Reading Programs helped create the float and road on the float in the parades.

In 2014, the Library created a float that used the Famous Jemez Duck Race as a theme with a large rubber ducky reading atop a yellow duck truck, with Library Director Carol Meine driving.

In 2001, Judith Isaacs, Library Director, and Mary Grace, parent , were the adults in this patriotic-themed float.

 

In 2000, the library chose “Where the Wild Things Are” for the theme of their float in the Fourth of July Parade. Richard Wasileski created a jungle and some monsters similar to those in the popular children’s book by Maurice Sendak of that title. Driver is Richard Barton.
