The Takoma Park Neighborhood Library turns 100 this November! We're going to be doing a lot to celebrate. First, we'd like to put together a cookbook full of recipes from Takoma residents. If you've lived in the neighborhood before, live here now or work(ed) here, please send us one of your best recipes to include in our book. (We won't ask you for your top secret recipe. Just something good that you like to make.) We'll put the book together, and our Friends of the Library will have copies available for sale this winter to benefit the library.
Join us at the Takoma Park Branch Library to celebrate the start of Summer Reading 2011. On Saturday, June 4, from 2 to 4 p.m., we'll be traveling around the world at the library. Begin by signing up for the Summer Reading program at our sign-up station, then travel to countries to sample their books, food and culture. Make origami in Japan, take your picture at the North Pole and learn to dance in India. Bring the whole family, and check it out -- this will be a kickoff for both the children's and teen's summer programs.
