Celebrating Play in the Month of May

Welcome Spring!

It’s about time spring rolled around and D.C. got some warm weather.

This spring, the William O. Lockridge/Bellevue Library is celebrating by getting ready for Summer Reading and playing outside! Because May is Physical Fitness and Sports Month, the library children’s room will be displaying information and books about how to play sports as well as showing off some of our collection’s biographies of famous athletes.

No matter what sport you are interested in, there’s a book here waiting for you to read it!

For example, you should come in and take a look at our biography picture book on women’s soccer player, Mia Hamm: Mia Hamm Winners Never Quit.

While you’re here, stop by and say hello to Miss Jen, the new children’s librarian and get some information about upcoming crafts and other programs.

One of our upcoming programs is our Saturday Homework Help Hour. This program will run on alternating Saturdays (this month it will be on May 11 and May 25). Make sure to drop by in between taking advantage of the great May weather.
