Touch-a-Truck at the Woodland Public Library

April 19, 2017

The Woodland Public Library is pleased to be hosting its second annual Touch-a-Truck family event, from 11 am to 1 pm on Saturday, April 29th at 250 First Street in Woodland.  A variety of trucks and vehicles from the community will be on display in the library parking lot and on First Street, adjacent to the library. The Fire Museum will also be open across Court Street, displaying its antique fire engines. Families will be able to get up close to everything, and even got on or in most of the vehicles! This year we are introducing a quiet hour with no horns, from 11-12 for those who would like a more peaceful atmosphere. After 12 pm children may be able to honk a horn or hear the sirens!

This year we have many favorites returning from last year like a fire truck, dump truck, garbage truck, police vehicle, tomato truck, and more. We will also have some first time vehicles, including a pop-up truck camper, a PG&E truck, and an ambulance.

We are grateful for the support of the city's many participating departments like Public Works, Fire, Police, Waste Management, and Community Services. We also appreciate our community partners like WJUSD, Yolo Bus, Valley Farm Transport, PG&E, American Medical Response, and Four Wheel Campers. We hope you will enjoy talking to the volunteers who are bringing each vehicle and learning about what each vehicle does in our community. If you have an interesting vehicle you would like to bring please feel free to contact the library!

This event is free to the public. The library's main parking lot, along with North and First Street next to the library, will be closed for the event, but parking will be available on the west side of College Street and in the lots by the Rose Garden. We hope to see you there!
