The Friends of the Takoma Park Maryland Library are holding a special Children's Book Sale at the Takoma Park Maryland Library on Saturday, December 17, from 10 a.m.- 2 p.m. Come pick up some great holiday gifts at bargain prices at the book sale, which will take place in the rotunda around the Library's Computer Learning Center. All proceeds benefit the Library and are used to support such programs as Spanish Circle Time, French Circle Time, and many others -- including upcoming annual Winter Solstice program at Thursday, Dec. 22 at 6:30 p.m. At the sale, you'll be able to buy brand new review copies of books for kids from birth through teens. Books will be offered at bargain prices -- $2 for hardcovers (which normally cost $10-$18!) and $1 for paperbacks. We'll also have 10 copies of one of the hottest books in America -- Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever -- autographed by the author, Jeff Kinney. The autographed copies are $20 each. Come early for the best selection!
Make a day of it! That same day -- Saturday, Dec. 17 -- at 10:30, we'll offer our monthly French Circle Time, followed at 11:15 a.m. by our third annual Holiday Sing-A-Long with local musician Wendy Lanxner and her music students. Then, from 2-4 p.m., kids are invited to make holiday gifts. Registration is required for the gift-making program so we can be sure to have enough craft materials for all. To register, go to Program Registration - Takoma Park Maryland Library or call us at 301-891-7259.Posted by at December 15, 2011 05:01 PM
