SummerQuest Campfire

We've decided to start our campfire program at 7 p.m. on Monday, July 27 (instead of 7:30 p.m.) to give kids more time to do some crafts. Please register if you're planning to attend, so we can make sure to have enough craft materials, which will be provided courtesy of the Friends of the Takoma Park Maryland Library. To register, go to www.takomapark.info/library/registration.html or call us at 301-891-7259. And no, this isn't a really campfire (we don't want to burn our books, after all!). But we will do all the things you do at a real campfire. Participants will even leave with the makings for s'mores! Hope to see you there.

Spanish Circle Time

We've had some confusion over the time for Spanish Circle Time. Senora Maria is here every Thursday from 11-11:30 (NOT 10-10:30, as we erroneously advertised). All are welcome -- no registration required. See you at 11 on Thursdays for some fun in Spanish!

Moliere for Kids

Thirteen middle schoolers in the Traveling Players Ensemble will present a rollicking version of The Bourgeois Gentleman,, a comedy by the French playwright Moliere (a.k.a. Jean-Baptiste Poquelin) on Thursday, July 16, at 7:30. The play will be performed in the Azalea Room in the Takoma Park Community Center (right next to the Library at 101 Philadelphia Ave.). The Bourgeois Gentleman focuses on a rich man who dreams of improving his social standing and goes to ridiculous lengths to do it. The 45-minute performance is best for ages 6 up. Adults also are most welcome to attend. Registration is NOT required (contrary to information in the July edition of the city newsletter).

The Traveling Players Ensemble, based in Great Falls, Va., presents comedies by Moliere and other classical playwrights to summer camps, libraries and hospitals. The group chooses humorous plays as a way of introducing young audiences to some classical playwrights. As Toby Mulford, the Ensemble’s associate artistic director puts it: "A perfect blend of heightened language and low-brow humor, the plays are short on windy speeches and long on laughs."
