Before you go to the Washington Park Read-In at 12:15 p.m. this Saturday, stop by the Smith Hill Branch Library for the 2nd Annual Christmas Bazaar sponsored by the Smith Hill Library Friends' Group. This family event will feature a book and bake sale, presents and games for kids and informational booths from area community organizations. It starts at 10:00 AM and continues until 2:00 PM.
For more information, consult the Smith Hill Community Development Corporation's Library page at http://www.smithhillcdc.org/sh-library (And check out the rest of the Smith Hill CDC's new website while you're at it.)
Here is some background information also from Patricia:
Washington Park is STILL closed! It seems that the City and PPL both are willing to reopen the branch, but the City is requiring that PPL sign a lease before it moves back in, and the lease seems to be stuck in the office of the City's lawyer. The Washington Park community is way beyond feeling impatient. They have decided to hold another Read-In in front of the closed library building on Saturday at 12:15. I hope you can attend and help support people in Washington Park, who have been without a full branch library for nearly three years and who have been without ANY branch library at all since the end of the summer.
