Join us for this film screening in celebration of the 2011 Black History Month theme: "African Americans & the Civil War." We'll show the first part of this 5 disc series, "The Cause" at 6:00 pm on Tuesday, February 8. The film will last approximately 90 minutes. If you like, stay afterwards to discuss your reactions with fellow viewers.
Do you enjoy creative writing? Have you got a story saved on your computer that you hope just might turn into a novel someday? Whether you write poetry, fiction, essays, children's literature, or other genres, you're invited to join our writing workshop at the Takoma Park branch. We meet at least once a month, and twice when schedules allow, always on a Thursday evening. The next meeting is this Thursday, Jan.
We will be observing and celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr. Day at the Takoma Park DC Library this Saturday, Jan. 15. Beginning at 2 pm, families can head to the children's room for a special Martin Luther King Day story time. Afterwards, join us for a craft and cake to celebrate the legacy of Dr. King.
Here's a list of items you can check out of a DC library near you to celebrate at home!(Takoma Park has most of these on the shelf - ask us if you need help or want to order a copy.)
