In honor of Dr. King's legacy, we will be decorating templates to be part of a large mural at the central MLK library downtown. We will decorate doves, peace signs, and the word "peace" as well as sign pledges to promote peace in our daily lives. 

Let's contribute to something bigger than our small branch at Takoma Park, and show the Martin Luther King branch that we want to promote peace! 

Not able to make it on Saturday? Please feel free to stop in anytime before Saturday, Jan. 25.

New Year, New Resolutions!

Many of us have begun New Year’s resolutions, and I am no exception. Mine begins, and will end, with literature. I have decided to read a book or piece of writing by an author from every country in the world! Of course, there are variations to this list: what territories are autonomous states vs. part of a larger country, disputed territories and other factors, but I am trying to stick to a list I found as closely as possible, which totals a little over 200 nations.

Here are some forms of writing I am looking forward to reading:

Join us for NEW Read Aloud Time on Saturdays at the Takoma Park Library!

We will have a rotating team of readers every Saturday at 11 a.m. with stories, action rhymes and songs for ages 2 - 5 and caregivers. This is a great alternative for those who can't make it to our weekday story times, or for those who can never have too many stories! 

We see a lot of families stopping in on weekends to pick out books, so we hope you can stay and enjoy this new program for little ones and families.
