Summer Reading Winners!

We had awesome participation in our Summer Reading Program at the new Woodridge Library, our first one since opening our beautiful new building last fall. Although hundreds of children completed the program and earned tickets to see the Washington Nationals, free books, and Chipotle meals, two lucky winners were the recipients of our special raffle prizes- a Kindle Fire and a set of Duplo blocks. Congrats to Eloise and Ethan for being such great readers this summer, and to all those who met their goals and had fun with us!

Tough Topics Read Feed: Peace and Conflict

When reflecting on the 2017 Summer Reading theme “Build a Better World" in the context of current events, the tough topics of “Peace” and "Conflict" come to mind. Why does it seem so difficult to grasp, embody and maintain? Ideally the books from this display will prompt family discussions about peace and the ways in which you can help to nurture and share it.
