Family Fun Time Salutes Pets

Cat and FishFrom hegdehogs to potbelly pigs to parakeets to St. Bernards, family pets come in all shapes and sizes. In fact, President Calvin Coolidge had a pet raccoon named Rebecca who lived in the White House.

We love our pets. During a recent Family Fun Time at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library we celebrated pets by reading books, dancing, singing songs, and making crafts. Check these pet books out!
If you missed this Family Fun Time, no worries. We host one every week here at MLK. Children and their families are encouraged to let loose and have a ball with us. Every Saturday at 11 a.m. in the Children's Room, come prepared to laugh, play and have fun! Please call the Children's Desk at 202-727-1248 to find out the specific theme for the week.
