Dozens of children as well as their parents and grandparents made their way to the this Thursday for the Louis Miranda Spanish Festival. As 1:30 PM came and went, Louis Miranda had not arrived at the library and was unable to be reached via phone. The crowded children's floor was left with both young and old mutually disappointed that the event could not proceed as planned.
"I guess we all just have to improvise," said Shalini Ahuja. "It's all for the kids anyway, so as long as they have fun it's alright."
In light of his absence, the library staff, led by Director Charlene Noll, put together an alternative fiesta including a storytime, sing-a-long and dances for the children before the showing of a movie in the all purpose room.
"There's a lot of great programs at the library put together by a great staff," said resident Joe Koenig. "I've gotten to see my kids grow up here."
The fiesta will be rescheduled within the next few weeks.
