Let's Talk About...

Teens are encouraged to use this program as a space to vent, hang out with friends, and discuss hot topics without feeling judged by adults. Topics for discussion might be relationships, fandoms, education, travel, sports, or whatever comes to mind! Let's Talk About... is a place where teens are free to voice their opinions on issues that matter to them. Feel free to stop by and make it your own.

Make a Valentine, Record a Love Poem

Spend a Sunday afternoon making something nice for someone special in your life. In addition to crafting lovely paper valentines, we will also show you how to make and send an audio recording of a love poem for someone - by email or by flash drive. Record your own poem or choose from a selection of poetry anthologies we’ll have available.  Anti-valentine content will also be available and encouraged. We will also host this program on Feb. 7 at Takoma Park Library.
Fringe: Music in the Library

FRINGE Music in the Library: Chain & the Gang 'turned down'

Chain and the Gang are self-described as the first anti-liberty group in rock and roll and are led by Ian Svenonius. Chain and the Gang "Turned down"-- as you've never seen them before. With the amplifiers at a lower volume perhaps, but with no diminishment of their pure energy and outrage. These specimens of total rejection are equipped with a warning sticker: "shocking at any volume!"
