Teen MovieCome join Anacostia Library as we watch great movie pick that is very shocking and suspenseful, and like any good Halloween movie, terrifying.

What would you do if your car breaks down in the middle of nowhere? What if you were forced to spend the night in a creepy motel?

Come see if this couple will make it through the movie alive to tell their story.

The movie will be shown at 6:30 p.m. in the Teen Area.

The Anacostia and Lamond-Riggs libraries are currently seeking qualified volunteers for a new series of events designed by DC Public Library and the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) Foundation. This program will be geared toward meeting the needs of older adults (50+) by providing them with the latest information on financial management, health and nutrition, new technology and job readiness.

The environment will be part socializing, part education, and part social services. This program will launch at the Anacostia Library and Lamond-Riggs Library in mid-October 2013.

Elephant EarsI just learned that Sept. 22 is Elephant Appreciation Day!

I love elephants. I love their big ears and long trunks and intimidating tusks. And I love how there are tons of books with important elephant characters!

My Friend is SadOf course, no list of elephant books is complete without mentioning Gerald from Mo Willems' Elephant and Piggie books.
