Children's Programming Break

No children's programs from Sept. 6 through Sept. 20

Now that summer is over, and children are back in school, the Chevy Chase Children's Room is taking a two week break from weekly programs. That means Baby Lap Time, Wonderful Ones, Tales for Twos and Threes, Toddler Time, Craft Night, Multilingual PJ Story Time, and Music Time will all resume the fourth week of September - the week beginning Sept. 21. Please still come to the Children's Room! We would love to see you, help you find some books, hear about your summer vacations, and help you start your homework.

'The Exorcist'

When we looked at our calendar, we realized our next meeting is in late September.

'Go Set a Watchman'- Opposing Viewpoints

Go Set a Watchman, Harper Lee’s long-awaited second (but technically first) novel is one of the most talked-about books of the summer. It’s also one of the most controversial. For some reason, if you are a reader, you are required to have an opinion on it (even if you haven’t read it.) Don’t worry. DC Public Library can help.

Lowbrow Throwdown


Sure, you could go to the beach this summer, but you just know they have shark attacks. The mayor of the charming resort town is probably just covering them up. Better come to our book club and talk about Jaws instead.
