Mother's Day Crafts

Kids, this Mother's Day, don't buy Mom a gift! Instead, make her something she'll treasure forever at the Library's Mother's Day craft event on Monday evening, May 7. Read on for more details.....

We'll begin our Mother's Day event at 7 p.m. with a story or two, and then move on to gift-making. Bring a photo we can use in a craft; the other materials will be provided, courtesy of the Friends of the Takoma Park, Md. Library. Please call 301-891-7259 to register so that we have enough materials for everyone.

D.E.A.R. Time

On Thursday afternoon, April 12, we particpated in the national "Drop Everything And Read" (D.E.A.R.) celebration, held each year on the birthday of "Ramona" creator Beverly Cleary.



after school April 12For our celebration, we listened to an audio book version of "Beezus and Ramona," the hilarious first book in the "Ramona" series. As we listened to actress Stockard Channing read the story -- giving a different voice to each character -- we also did some spring crafts.

Here's a look at what we did.
