Pierce County libraries will get the royal treatment Saturday.

Members of the Daffodil Festival’s royal court will read to kids and pose for pictures at 17 county library branches, plus the City of Puyallup’s library.

They’ll be at the Gig Harbor, Bonney Lake, Tillicum, University Place, Parkland, Sumner, Puyallup, South Hill and Graham libraries at 11 a.m., and at the Key Center, Buckley, Dupont, Eatonville, Steilacoom, Lakewood, Orting, Summit and Edgewood libraries at 2 p.m.

They’ll be back for more stories and photos March 19, April 16; the program may extend into the summer. The Daffodil Festival Grand Floral Parade is April 9.

  1. What a terrific idea! Little girls and boys, alike, will enjoy meeting a ‘real princess” and reading to children is one of the very best ways to spend time with them. I love, love, love this idea. Great job!
