Petworth Library gets your kids ready for a summer of reading with Library-Con

The "Library-Con" at the Petworth Library is a semi-annual event held to promote summer-time reading programs for kids at the Library. With programs on Legos, Star Wars, anime, science and even face painting, it sounds like a great way to introduce reading to kids (or keep existing readers enthusiastic). Heck, they had me at Legos and Star Wars.

This year's theme is "Go for the Gold! READ!" and is a prelude to their summer reading program, beginning in June. Library-Con gives kids of all ages an opportunity to interact with various literacy-themed programs while having fun. Activities include author talks, crafts, a Zine workshop, anime/manga, face painting, and science workshops like demonstrating our 3-D printers. Plus, there's a special story-time with fairytale characters, face-painting and lots of giveaways and special prizes. 

Library-Con will be held Saturday, May 14th from 1-5pm at the Petworth Library (4200 Kansas Ave NW).
