The library's early September trip to Baked & Wired (1052 Thomas Jefferson St. NW) was so successful that we're returning for seconds...and thirds!

On Wednesday, Oct. 1 and Wednesday, Nov. 5 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., the library will bring its new Library Takeout service back to the locally owned coff
ee shop and bakery, which means you can drop by and sign up for a library card, check out materials, and learn more about library programs and resources.

So whether you're coming in to warm up with your favorite espresso drink, try a pumpkin treat, or attend Baked & Wired's weekly Baked Short Story "Book Club," be sure to make the library part of your visit!

The Cover of El DeafoAward-winning author & illustrator Cece Bell will talk about her latest book, El Deafo, a graphic novel that describes her experiences growing up deaf in the 1970s.

As a child, Cece felt like she was a superhero with special powers from her hearing aid. So she called herself "El Deafo."

Do not miss this spectacular author and her latest book, which the New York Times says "should be an inspiration for those who are 'different,' and it should help others to understand just what being different means."
