NE Library to Loudly Open Outdoor Reading Room

originally uploaded to Flickr by DCLibrary

Libraries are supposed to be quiet places, right? Not this weekend. The Northeast Library will celebrate the opening of its Outdoor Reading Room with a performance by Jali-D, the Drum Talker at noon on Saturday.  David Foreman, aka ‘Jali-D,’ is an accomplished percussionist and spoken word artist with a talent for what he calls “rappercussions” that entertain and educate both children and adults. If drums at the library seem a bit too crazy, Mother Goose will be on hand for story time at 1:30 p.m. And for those of you more bent on owning than borrowing books, the Friends of the Northeast Library will host a used book sale from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The renovations include window restoration, masonry repointing and cleaning, repairs to the ornamental fence, new signage and extensive landscape improvements. City funding permitting, the interior renovations will be completed in 2011.

You can find out more about the branch’s programming on the website, but highlights include an origami club, music and movement classes, teen movie and games nights and children’s story hours for toddlers, pre-schoolers as well as those learning sign language and French.
