WinterQuest Is Here!

Our first-ever WinterQuest reading program debuts today! The idea is to keep everyone reading over the holidays and have fun doing it. So come into the library anytime in the next month to pick up your character, gameboard and story so you can start tackling the 10 WinterQuest reading challenges. Unlike our SummerQuest program, we won't have a giant gameboard to track readers' progress, and instead we're asking readers to record the books they read on their own gameboard. But -- just like SummerQuest -- we will end with a party, which will take place on Monday, January 13 at 7 p.m. Credit for the gameboard and story goes, of course, to Dave Burbank, our in-house artiste extraordinaire. And thanks go to the Friends of the Takoma Park Maryland Library for sponsoring our first-ever WinterQuest!

Kids Programs Canceled

Due to the snowstorm, the library is closed all day. That means our programs schedule for today -- two Circle Times at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m., Comics Jam at 4 p.m., and Bedtime Stories at 7 p.m. --are canceled. We'll reschedule the Comics Jam for next Tuesday December 14 at 4 p.m. Our Circle Times next week at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. will be led by Nancy Nuttle of Music Together. And stay tuned for a new date for Bedtime Stories. Enjoy the snow!
