Science in the Summer is a fun, free experiment-oriented course taught by certified teachers to groups of 15 children in two age groups: children entering second and third grades (Level I)children entering fourth through sixth grades (Level II)
On Saturday, June 15, Petworth Library hosted its annual D.C. Read-In Event. D.C. Read-In is a day-long reading event hosted at all DC Public Library locations. It consists of activities to promote reading as a pleasurable activity, and celebrates readers of all ages.
Meet Renata, our first summer reader who has completed eight hours of reading! She got to choose a book to keep, put her name on a flower pot in our "Garden of Readers," get a certificate of completion, and she put her name in a drawing to win a Kindle Fire or two tickets to a Washington Nationals game.
Petworth Neighborhood Library encourages others to be shameless about their love of books! It's never too early to begin reading with your baby, nor is it too late to encourage good reading habits in your older child.
