Great summer reading events planned at Rosedale Recretion Center Library

The Friends of the Rosedale Library have lots of great summer reading activities planned this summer.  Here are the events for June.  The program runs through August 24th, so there will be more to come as the summer progresses.  The Rosedale Recreation Center pool is now open for the summer (weekends only until school lets out) and the new playground there opened Friday, so there are lots of reasons to stop by 1701 Gales Street this month. 
"Dig Into Reading" and "Beneath the Surface" are the themes for the DC Public Library Summer Reading Program. which runs June 1st to August 24th.  There are programs and events for all ages, from babies to children, teens and adults!
