As the weather finally begins to cool in D.C. and the rhythm of the school year finally settles in, it can be a great time to think back (or forward) about the summer.

In honor of National Asian Pacific Heritage month in May, the West End Library hosted a Haiku Contest for all ages. One winner from the adult, teen and child categories were chosen.
Patrons were invited to write a haiku about their love of books, stories, the library, or anything in DC and submit in person at the branch.
Prize-winners took home library swag and had their poem posted in the library and on the DC Public Library website!
Please note: The last two readings, dates, and locations of the Shakespeare Society have changed to the following:
Tuesday, July 16 | Macbeth

The transition from spring to summer, however, reminds me of my favorite awards show of the season: the annual Tony Award ceremony. As you take your last opportunity to review the season’s cast recordings, catch up on show highlights online and make your award predictions, why not pick up a book about this incredible art form?
