PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — “KidsPlay at Market Square” kicked off another summer of song, hands-on craftsmanship and guest artists Tuesday morning.

“We provide the kids with an opportunity to come into Market Square, typically an adult haven, for some education and entertainment,” says Jeremy Waldrup, president of the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership.

He says it’s the first year they’ve teamed up with Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh.

“They have their reading room here. Kids as well as adults can come every Tuesday and look at the options the library has. They’re doing book sales.”

Market Square visitors can pick up a gently used book for a dollar or two. Kids enjoy Storytime with Carnegie Library’s Heather LeVeck.

“You just have to get the right books and the right person telling the story,” she explains. “If you don’t like it, they’re not going to like it.”

KidsPlay at Market Square” takes place every Tuesday, 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., through August 21.
