Young Reader’s Center

bookThe Library of Congress has now become child friendly! I just read in this week’s RCLS Memo that on January 28, the Young Reader’s Center opened on the bottom floor of the Library of Congress. The hours are Monday through Saturday from 9 to 4:30pm., and it is geared for ages 16 and under. Every Friday at 10:30, a storytime for infants and toddlers is offered, and on three Saturdays this month, parties will be held before the noontime films (shown at the James Madison Building). Children are invited to come in costume and can take part in film -related activities with books and crafts. Families can also take an interactive tour on Saturdays, with children ages 6 to 12. A teen board of 39 students from local schools has also formed, and offers teen book reviews on the website. For more information, click here.
