Celebrate the freedom to read at DC Public Library
Children 12 and under, visit the Children's Room during Banned Books Week and try to guess the banned book in the jar on the Children's Desk. Correct guesses will be entered into a drawing on Oct. 5. Guess the book for each day and improve your chances of winning the prize -- a gift card for a Subway meal.
Parents and caregivers visiting the Children's Room this Fall, try your hand at a fun and relaxing craft, coloring pages for adults. Each Thursday afternoon and evening an Art Nouveau to Art Deco coloring page with coloring pencils, markers and crayons will be available on the 2nd floor to enjoy.

Readers of all ages enjoy comics, but on May 2, children and teens across the city were able to browse and select a free comic at their closest public library. Thanks to Big Planet Comics, all District of Columbia Public Library locations received multiple copies of popular stories from Manga, Marvel, IDW and more.
Two young readers, Ezra Marshall and Stacey Young, captured the spirit of the day at the William O. Lockridge/Bellevue Library by posing for photos and encouraging others to read more comics.
William O. Lockridge Bellevue Neighborhood Library welcomes you to enjoy a poem every day during the month of April. The readings are in honor of National Poetry Month, designated by the Academy of American Poets in 1996.
Join us every day at 4 p.m. to hear a poem read over the library inter-com.
There will be readings featuring diverse poets from around the globe.
Come and enjoy!
