Do you like to be left scratching your head after finishing a book? Do you enjoy asking yourself, “What, exactly, did I just read?”
What Did I Just Read?! Book Club may be just what you’re looking for! Once a month, we’ll meet to discuss an innovative work of literature that avoids taking the straight path from A to B. These books sometimes start at B, or they skip B, or they never really leave A. Perhaps they just circle around point C.
Start off the new year with a resolution to join the Child/Parent Book Club with your 2nd-5th grader.
On Jan. 8, at 7 pm. .elementary students and interested parents will discuss The Wide-Awake Princess by E. D. Baker.
How many fairy tale characters will you recognize?
Need to get out of the house over the Holidays with your little one? Come join us for a Holiday Play time at the Takoma Park Neighborhood Library. Instead of our regular Lap Time and Story Time on Dec. 30, we will have free play with a mirror tent, tunnel and lots of toys for babies and preschoolers from 10 a.m. to 11:15 a.m.
Join us on Saturday, Dec. 13 at 2 p.m. as we celebrate the upcoming winter season!
There will be a seasonal themed story time, as well as two craft activities. We will be decorating sugar cookies and making paper ornaments to decorate our Takoma Park holiday/winter tree (or to take home)!
This is sure to be a fun afternoon, so we hope to see you there!
Call 202-576-7252 for more information.
