Literature has the power to transport an audience to another time and place, to illustrate meaningful life lessons through complex characters, intricate themes and different points of view.   The DC Public Library in partnership with Guy Mason Recreation Center invites you to participate in the short story discussion program sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities.   

Baby Lap Time

A story time experience for our youngest library users and their caregivers. These 20-to-30-minute story times introduce books, songs, rhymes, tickles and bounces developmentally appropriate for children from birth to when they start walking. Baby Lap Time is a wonderful way to introduce your child to the joys of reading in a positive and fun atmosphere. This story time is designed so the baby will be in their caregiver’s lap and the grownup is actively involved in the program; it is recommended that each child have their own adult with them.
