Greek displayAs part of DC's Kids Euro Festival our library had a week-long celebration of Greece. Along with a display of books on Greek cooking, culture, history and mythology, we also had a showing of Disney's Hercules. We had puppet and drawing crafts in the Children's Room during the week. We also had special Greek story times where we read Aesop's fables and tales from Greek mythology.

This year is no exception in the Teen Space, where teens are working hard preparing for their Haunted Halloween Party on Tuesday, Oct. 29 at 6:30 p.m. (ages 8 and older!). Scary books will be read, games will be played, and candy is sure to be plentiful!
