Postponing D&D Event

Due to a variety of circumstances, we need to postpone our introduction to Dungeons & Dragons event until next Monday, Jan. 29, at 7:30 p.m. We hope this doesn't cause any problems for anyone, and we hope to see you next Monday! Please call 301-891-7259 to register.

Dungeons & Dragons for Parents and Educators

Come learn more about the creative storytelling game of Dungeons & Dragons at a program hosted by Library Assistant and Dragon Master Dave Burbank on Monday, Jan. 22 at 7:30 p.m. To show how D&D is played, Dave will present a quick adventure, so parent and kid teams are welcome! Please call 301-891-7259 to register.

D&D is an exhilarating and rowdy interactive storytelling game that uses themes and images borrowed from world mythology and folklore. It involves players in a cooperative and basically non-competitive activity of the imagination. Come to the Library event to learn how the game is played, and share the adventure with your child.

Two-sies Return!

We'll be offering our winter "two-sies" program for two-year-olds in Feburary. We'll meet each Wednesday in February, from 10-10:30 a.m., for stories, songs, rhymes and a simple craft. We've got a few spots left, so call 301-891-7259 to sign up, or just stop by the Library's front desk.

Winter Wishes

Winter is the darkest time of the year, when the days are short and the nights are long. But we've gotten past the Winter Solstice, so, bit by bit, it's getting lighter longer each day. At the Library, we have a tradition of hanging colorful paper birds -- each containing a special wish for Mother Earth and her children -- from the ceiling in the Children's Room.

Help us create a beautiful flock of birds! Come by the front desk and ask for one to color. You can color it in the Library (ask for our container of colored pencils) or take it home to color and then return it to the Library. Write your wish on the wings, and put your name on the body of the bird.

If you have any questions, call Karen MacPherson, the children's/teen librarian at 301-891-7262, or email karenm@takomagov.org.
