I was in my glory tonight! Had my mate Quincy in the house! He looks
up to me, calls me his Big Bro, though we are not actually related. We are the same breed though, both Cavaliers, and do look a lot alike, except I am much bigger and have slightly curlier hair. I have known him for a long, long time, and of course, we are both PAL dogs.

We do a lot together and yet, I never knew that he likes books as much I do! So now, in addition to playing in the park and having baths together (Yes, that’s true!), we have added library visits to our regular activities. It’s a dog’s life, I tell you!

I just can’t stop droolin’… I love library nights! As soon as I saw my favorite brick building, I started to pick up the pace. I couldn’t wait to get to the children’s room to see Miss Julie and all the kids.

The Chelsea Hotel in Manhattan has given a roof to more writers, musicians, and artists than any other building on earth: Bob Dylan, Arthur Miller, Arthur C. Clarke, Leonard Cohen, Janis Joplin, Rufus Wainwright, Derek Walcott, Joseph O'Neill, Patti Smith, Robert Mapplethorpe, William Dean Howells, Thomas Wolfe and too many more to list here.

In November the Chevy Chase Branch features a display of interesting "Tales of the Chelsea Hotel," with a selection of books by and about people associated with the Chelsea.  We have books by Nobel Prize-winning poet and Chelsea Hotel resident Derek Walcott, "Netherland" by Joseph O'Neill (much of which takes place in the Chelsea), "Legends of the Chelsea Hotel" by Ed Hamilton, National Book Award-winning "Just Friends" by Patti Smith, and much more.

On October 20th, approximately 70 children and adults had fun carving and painting pumpkins at Chevy Chase library.  The pumpkins were purchased by the friends and partial donation from Magruder's grocery. So a warm thanks goes out to both of them, and because a picture is worth a thousand words....

Hey! It’s Harpo here. Freshly showered today! And let me say, coming to the library is a lot more fun than having a shower!

Greetings! My full name is Aubrey Valentine. I am named for my beautiful auburn color and the fact that I was born close to St. Valentine’s Day. So, it is no surprise that I like to kiss, kiss, kiss. I kiss hands, and I kiss faces. I’ll kiss you, if you’d like!

Whoo-eee! What a day. I had a play date. We romped. We played. We chased sticks. I like to keep active. And, I like to socialize. So, it was off to the library to visit my human friends next. Big dogs like to spread the love. And to some, I’m known as Leo-the-Lovebug!
