Activities for children all summer long

Looking ahead to plan summer activities for children?  Look no further than the Capitol View Library! With a wide array of engaging and hands-on programming, there is always something to do. 

Summer Challenge
June 1- August 31
Read 20 minutes every day.  It’s that simple! Over the summer, DC Public Libraries are encouraging everyone to read 20 minutes every day.  Earn prizes and enter some great raffles along the way. Read anywhere you like - at the library, the park, home, on the bus - anywhere!  Keep track of your reading on Beanstack and visit the library tell the staff all about your reading and to claim your prizes. Refresh or create your Beanstack account today so you are ready to start logging on June 1.
