Learn about the great variety of databases available through dclibrary.org. Browse the book, audio and DVD collections. Let us tell you about the great programs coming up. Get a library card! Enjoy!

STAR [Sing, Talk And Read] training, 1:30 p.m.:
Learn how singing, talking and reading with your baby now can help your child later in school.  Singing helps children learn and remember new words and to hear the smaller sounds in words. Talking with children is an easy way to help them develop language and other early literacy skills. Shared reading teaches children new words, shows them how a book works, and introduces them to the printed word. 

Global Lens Film Series, 2 p.m.:
Modest Reception (Iran, 2012): Giving away money is harder than it sounds. A mysterious pair of urban sophisticates come up with increasingly brazen schemes to place large sums of cash in the hands of the wary, proud or indifferent. In Farsi with English subtitles.

Teen Mixer, 3 p.m.:
Bring all your friends and learn about the programs the library has to offer you. There will be games, food, music, and a book draft to pick the top teen books of 2013.
