Come celebrate Hispanic Heritage month with us on Saturday, Sept. 28 starting at 1 p.m. We will kick off with the Maru Montero dancers performing at 1 p.m. There will be face painting of various Latin American flags, Spanish and English bilingual story-time, and live guitar music. There will even be some samples of Salvadoran and Puerto Rican cuisine (thanks to our Friends of the Takoma Park Library and to some of our staff.)
DC Public Library has the privilege of presenting, in collaboration with the Global Film Initiative, this year's Global Lens Film series. This is a series of 10 award-winning feature films from Brazil, China, Chile, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Kazakhstan, India, Serbia and Mexico.
It's already August, but it's not too late for a summer getaway!
We travel for fun, adventure, relaxation, and to escape our routine. Some people enjoy travelling to places they've never been before, while others prefer their annual trek to the same place they've been vacationing for years. Some prefer the hustle and bustle of cities, while others prefer the solitude of beaches, mountains, or forests. Wherever you go and however you get there, a good vacation read is part of any enjoyable trip! For some of us, catching up on our reading is what vacation is all about!
One of our most popular performers is back on Tuesday, July, 30 at 1:30 p.m.Blue Sky Puppet Theater will be performing a special show, "The Time Capsule," designed specifically for DC Public Libraries and the "Dig into Reading" Summer Reading Program. Remember to bring along your summer reading logs and report your activities completed or your time spent reading to pick up your prizes.
