Start Black History Month with a family game time. Get the “scoop” on Black History: We will play "Famous African Americans J-I-N-G-O” -- a Bingo-style game; it's fun for all ages -- and enjoy information from the pages of What Color is My World?” by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. All ages are welcome.
Are you interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and/or Mathematics? Join us to design, construct, discover, create, and so much more! Ages 6-12.

Black Space is an art exhibition by Holly Bass in the Great Hall of the MLK Library. Black Space is a tiny house in the shape of the District, which has been a center of Black culture since the early 1900s. As D.C. residents, we all occupy black space, regardless of ethnicity or background. Visitors will be invited to share their D.C. memories with the artist and create collaborative responses – photographs, poems, sketches, and oral histories, which will be catalogued and displayed in the house.
Join us for stories, songs, and rhymes selected especially for ages 1-5, when children are first beginning to learn the framework for reading. Click here to learn about what to expect at Story Time.
Come to this story time and listen to books from and about other parts of the world! With songs and fingerplays in different languages, this story time is a cultural experience for the whole family. Around the World Story Time is for children ages 3-5 and their caregivers. See you there!
Need a place to sit and chat with friends, play games, or just chill? Come to the Afterschool Lounge on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays and use the library's large conference room as a group study room, game space, lounge and snack area. Board and card games are available. Food and drinks are welcome. Crafts, trivia tournaments, video games, and other activities will be available on a rotating basis. Ages 11-19.
Mondays in February, students are invited to learn and play chess and checkers. Lessons and play will start Mondays 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Children of all ages and levels are encouraged to come and join the fun. There will be prizes for children who participate. Chess and checkers will help students to continue to develop their critical thinking skills in a safe, fun and competitive environment. Mr. Lawrence, our children's librarian, will be in charge of instruction and coordination. We hope to see you here!
We meet interesting community members, play Wii games, watch movies, play board games, talk about awesome books, and hang out with boys from the neighborhood. If this sounds like fun, join us here at Capitol View Library. Boys ages 8-13 are invited to attend.
