George R.R. Martin made the big announcement that set all our fandom hearts alight when he posted one word on his website. Yes, that's right. The fifth installment of the Song of Ice and Fire entited A Dance with Dragons comes out this July. It was years in the making, but the saga finally continues. And, just so you know, it's already on order at DC Public Library, so keep checking the library catalog to get onto the waitlist as soon as it shows up. It'll hit the shelves in about two months.
We are excited to announce that the Watha T. Daniel Library will be hosting a Girls Rock! Instrument Share. Come try your chops at electric guitar, bass, drums, DJ equipment, and more. The Instrument Share also serves as an informational session about the Girls Rock! DC organization. Check out this video interview with Ebony Dumas of Girls Rock!, featured on the Kojo Nnamde show:
If you’re a regular customer in the children’s area, you've probably noticed that Watha T. Daniel Library has a new mascot: Lucky, the pet hamster.
Lucky arrived with our new children’s librarian, Anina Ertel, who joins us after working for five years at the Juanita E. Thornton/Shepherd Park branch.
