Group Reading of 'The Legend of Sleepy Hollow' by Washington Irving

We're reading Washington Irving's "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," a-l-o-u-d and in round-robin fashion, in celebration of Halloween.  Sparkling cider and pumpkin treats will be served.  Whoa, Ichabod Crane. Beware, Brom Bones. And watch out for the headless horseman!

Book or Treat!

Join us for our annual Halloween celebration! We will begin with a ghoulish storytime at 7 p.m., followed by a costume contest. The judging will begin at 7:30 and the prizes will be awarded at 7:50. A craft activity for older children will be provided, as well as refreshments, and of course... BOOKS AND TREATS! Call 202-576-7252 for more information.

Spooktacular Movie: Who you gonna call?

Come watch spirit-exterminators who fearlessly take on the other-worldly evil infiltrating Manhattan, whether it manifests itself as wicked green slime or an ancient tyrant back from the dead to take over the world. When busting ghosts, who you gomma call?
