All library locations will be closed on Monday, January 15th, for Martin Luther King Jr. Day. On Tuesday, January 16th, all library locations will be closed except for the Main Library and the Brookfield and Eastmont Branches.
Drop Everything and Read
Inspired by Oakland Freedom School's D.E.A.R. Day model, we will open and close the afternoon with a Harambee circle (which in Swahili means "pulling together") and use cheers, chants and games to build community and a love for reading.
While recommended for families with children 12 and under, all are welcome. Snacks will be served.
Brought to you in collaboration with the Lincoln Child Center.
