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.

I swished into the library tonight wearing my fashionable fall vest for the last time this season. With the chill in the air, I know it’s time to un-bury my winter wardrobe. It’s sweater time!! And in my four years of living, I have accumulated a fine and festive collection, all warm and cozy, that I am eager to wear.

The kids were so happy to see me, their Belly Rub Queen. They shouted, Ava! Ava! Ava! I felt like a million bucks.
