Preregistration for Baby Lap Time and Wonderful Ones & Twos no longer needed
We will no longer require preregistration for story times.
Starting July 29, children and their caregivers attending Baby Lap Time and Wonderful Ones & Twos will need tickets to participate.
A limited number of tickets will be made available 30 minutes before story time in our Children's Room. They will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis.
Other story times that require tickets are Tuesday's Story Break and Friday's Preschool Story Time.
At some point, we will all have to deal with grief over the loss of a loved one. But as local author Rhoda Trooboff shows in her new title, Correspondence Course: The Bathsua Project, how we deal with that grief and heal from it can be a defining moment in our lives.
This summer, put on your PJs and join us Thursday evenings at 6:30 p.m. at Tenley-Friendship Library for fun children’s movies. Food, blankets and pillows are welcome.
Check out our line up.

The Washington Home and Community Hospices in partnership with the D.C. Public Library will be hosting "Caring for Bedbound and Modbility Challenged Adults" an interactive program to empower caregivers in our communities with information and tips that can help provide the best possible care for a loved one who is homebound or bedbound.
My taste in science fiction, I like to think, boasts a degree of range. Stories that take place in the near-future, the future-future, in space, on a different planet - I have favorites that fall in all of those categories.
But across sub-genres, science fiction stories featuring clones always draw me in. I’m not exactly sure why. All of my favorite books about clones seem to pose the question what it really means to be “human" - maybe that's what it is.
