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!
Audience members will be treated to four short films from 2014 about the world all around. FINconceivable, Lucky Ducklings (Washington, D.C. premiere), The Marvelous Musical Report of the Marine National Monuments and Me...Jane are sure to delight.
