City celebrating 125th birthday party with kids

In honor of the City of Paso Robles’ 125th birthday, the Paso Robles City Library will host a birthday celebration for children ages 3-8 on Saturday, September 13 at 2:00 p.m. in the library conference room. Guest of honor, local author Elizabeth Spurr, will read to children from some of her best-selling picture books including a perennial favorite, The Biggest Birthday Cake in the World. Following the special birthday story time, children are invited to decorate their own birthday cupcakes using goodies that will be provided.

“Children love to celebrate birthdays, and the library wanted to be sure that the youngest Paso Roblans had a wonderful way to celebrate their city in style during this 125th anniversary year,” said Heather Stephenson, Children’s Services Librarian at the Paso Robles Library. “We are planning a fun-filled afternoon at the library, and while we may not have the biggest birthday cake in the world, there will be plenty of sprinkles and icing on hand.”

There is limited space to attend the birthday event, so those who wish to attend will need a free ticket which will be available at the children’s desk of the Library thirty minutes before the start of the 2 p.m. program.

Ms. Spurr’s many picture books including one of her newest titles, Monsters Mind Your Manners, will be available for autograph and purchase during the program. To learn more about Elizabeth Spurr visit

The Paso Robles City Library is located at 1000 Spring Street and is open Monday – Friday 10-8, and Saturday 10-5. For more information on library programs and events, , please call the library at 237-3870 or visit
