Although afterschool programs are on hiatus, there's still fun to be had at the Northeast Library. We invite you to watch a movie with us, in place of our regularly scheduled programming. The 2 p.m. screening is intended for audience members 5 and older, and as such, any movie shown will have the MPAA rating of PG. If you have any questions or concerns about this event, please call the library at 202-698-0183.

What's big, furry, and likes to live in cold places? Why it's a yeti of course. What's a yeti you say? Yetis -- or abominable snowmen as they otherwise known -- are legendary creatures said to inhabit the Himalayan region of Nepal and Tibet. Unfortunately, we couldn't coax a yeti to make an appearance at the library, but we can celebrate all that makes them wonderful. Join us for an afternoon of games, crafts and more as we devote us ourselves to this fascinating creature. For ages 6 and older.
Join Rosedale's Reel Reading Book Club! Kids read a book. Then on the last Tuesday of each month, they watch the movie that the book inspired, or the movie that inspired the book.
