Hi. I am a happy fellow. I love to play, to have treats, and to read books (in that order!).

Deborah ClearmanAuthor Deborah Clearman will be visiting the Chevy Chase branch on Monday, December 13, at 7 p.m.

Clearman will be reading from her latest book, Todos Santos.  This exciting new novel is about a woman's journey to Guatemala with her teenage son, and was inspired by Clearman's own travels.

The book has garnered praise from Publishers Weekly and Joyce Maynard, and we are very excited about this event.

Clearman will also be signing copies of Todos Santos, and patrons will be able to purchase a copy at the event.

Hello, fine friends. C’est moi, the ever-refined, fashion-forward, five-year old (mas o menos) PAL  grandee. Demurely, I slipped into the library this evening, gracing the room with my plum-purple knit sweater. It was a lovely contrast to my pewter gray coat.

Floppy ears. Wheee-eeee. Dr. Seuss feet. Hee. Hee. It’s me. Pup-a-Roo. Two years old and PAL certified. I am the man!

I love kisses. I love books. I love kids, and I love you (particularly if you are wearing chapstick!).

Pete is the mascot of the Chevy Chase Library and hangs out at the library every day. As you can see, he is very well read (he reads everything from Janet Evanovich to Plato) and hangs out with his friends at the library such as Chopin. Most of all, Pete loves story time and tries to sneak in whenever he can. Stop by and say hi to Pete the next time you are in the library!

Happy Birthday, Dear Pabl-O-O-O… I can still hear the music from my recent birthday celebration. I just turned six and it’s a very cool age to be. I wish I could be six forever!!

Did you know that French fries actually originated in Belgium, not France? 
Did you know Belgium has a higher percentage of women working as ministers than any other country? (55% in fact)
Did you know that the Smurfs come from Belgium??

Belgium is a fascinating place, and there's more to it than lace and chocolates.  Come see our display!  You can see a little preview of it here.
