Now that summer is coming to a close, and children are getting ready to return to school, the Chevy Chase Children's Room is going to be taking a two week break from weekly programs. That means Baby Lap Time, Toddler Time, and Craft Night will all resume the second week of September - the week beginning Sept. 9. This doesn't mean that you can't come to the children's room; we would love to see you, help you find some books, hear about your summer vacations, and help you finish your summer reading!
During the break, if you'd like to keep reading, here are some books that we recommend!
Great books for babies:
There’s only a few days left to complete your Summer Reading and win some awesome prizes!
Once you bring in your completed game board, you not only get to choose a fabulous book to keep, you'll also be entered in a raffle to win some cool prizes!
So don’t forget to bring it in, or call if you’re out of town, by Saturday the Aug. 24!
A Quiet Revolution by Leila Ahmed is the Chevy Chase Library History Book Club selection for the Sept. 10 meeting.

Copies of the book are available at the library's Information Desk.
