Dinosaur roar

Dinosaur Roaring Contest

Wednesday, June 30, 2021, 6:00 pm

Southeast Library wants to hear you roar! We are calling on dinosaur fans to share their best impressions of their dinosaur breed of choice.  Do you have a killer pterodactyl shriek, a mean tyrannosaurus growl or a wicked brontosaurus grunt?  Record a video of your best dinosaur roar (10 seconds or less) and submit your entry here.
Whose poop is that?

Let's Make Poop

Thursday, July 1, 2021, 10:30 am

Southeast Library is hosting a special play party at the Eastern Market Metro plaza in collaboration with the Children's National Hospital. We'll be reading books about different animals and what they like to eat. Children will be invited to experiment with playdough and slime to create their own pretend animal poop, and embark on a treasure hunt to discover magical unicorn poop hidden throughout the plaza.
