My taste in science fiction, I like to think, boasts a degree of range. Stories that take place in the near-future, the future-future, in space, on a different planet - I have favorites that fall in all of those categories.
But across sub-genres, science fiction stories featuring clones always draw me in. I’m not exactly sure why. All of my favorite books about clones seem to pose the question what it really means to be “human" - maybe that's what it is.

What is an Altered Book?
An “altered book” is a book that has been transformed by creative means into a work of art. Creating altered books may be as simple as adding a drawing or text to a page or as complex as creating an intricate book sculpture.
The exhibition is open to anyone. Youth (under 18) may be assisted by adults. One entry per person. Must be a member of DC Public Library to enter.
Have you heard about In the Zone? Every third Tuesday here at Tenley, we have a special program where we do something a little...different.
This month, we made decorative cupcakes out of tissue papers, sequins, beads, and lots and lots of glitter!
For next month’s In the Zone, join Ms. Shelley and celebrate Mardi Gras! Make your own masquerade mask, eat King Cake, and be sure to join in the parade around the library! See you there.
Celebrate MLK Day this year with a special story time
Celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. with Adaptive Services and People Animals Love here at the Tenley Library. Deaf Services Librarian Janice Rosen will be hosting a special story time in American Sign Language for ages 3 to 5 featuring books showcasing the life and ideals of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
A sign language interpreter will interpret Ms. Rosen’s reading. Afterward, children are welcome to meet and read with therapy dogs from People Animals Love (PAL).
