Did you know all the great things you can do at any DC Public library?

1. Got a mobile music device? We have audiobooks you can download from the Web site – about 6,000 of them, with new titles constantly being added. We were also the first library system in the country to offer iPod-compatible downloadable audiobooks.

2. There’s a lot of fun free stuff to do in this city – some of it is even at the library. For example, the West End
location offers Qijong, Tango and Yoga Meditation programs. Around the corner, we’re setting up a series of beverage-making workshops called “Brew ‘n Book” and planning a Saturday bicycle tour of some different downtown libraries.

3. Are you part of the Twitterati? We’re tweeting. Join 1,600 others following us @dcpl.

Sincebook cover we've read some very dark novels lately, the Georgetown Book Club's next meeting will focus on something a bit lighter and a lot funnier than anything we've done before.  On May 13 at 7:30, we will meet to discuss How I Became a Famous Novelist by Steve Hely.  A writer for 30 Rock, American Dad, and The Late Show with David Letterman, Hely's second book pokes affectionate fun at the publishing industry.  Book lovers will recognize many popular writers and public figures in Hely's hilarious satire.  Stop by the desk to get a copy of the book, and we'll see you on Thursday the 13th!
