Hey kids and parents! Do you need something to read over the winter break? DC Public Library has great links to help you find super books! You can explore BookFlix which pairs picture books and nonfiction books that have similar themes. Children can read the books, and listen to them as well! Click here to try it. Another great resource is Novelist K-8. You can look up books for ages 0-8, 9-12, and teens. You can search for books based on genre, author, title and series.

We are sad to see our children's librarian, Miss Amy, leave for a different opportunity doing library work with "big kids." Amy was our fabulous children's librarian for two years and we already miss her! We wish her the best in her endeavor working for an educational foundation in the District of Columbia.
Meanwhile, parents and children will see some new faces for story time for a few weeks as we await the arrival of our new (fabulous!) children's librarian, Miss Bridgid. Regardless of personnel changes, there is always someone here at the Petworth Interim Library to sing, talk and read with the children and parents of this community. Visit us soon!
