Read-In Saturday

ReadingNext month it will be THREE YEARS since the Washington Park branch of the library closed. The old library, located near the south side entrance to Roger Williams Park, has been renovated, and has a new roof and shelves just waiting to be filled with books; the temporary location, in half of the old Benny’s on Broad Street, has been closed because of (probably very justified) fears about the building’s air quality.

In October of 2006, Save Our Branches, a group of Washington Park residents, staged a read-in in front of the library.  Everybody brought a book and read aloud, to show that the people of Washington Park actually care about reading.

Over two years later, there’s going to be another read-in.  Bring your own book, since the library doesn’t have any for you.

Saturday, 12:15pm

(Also, if you feel like library-hopping tomorrow, it’s also the Holiday Bazaar at the Smith Hill branch on Candace Street; that goes from 10am to 2pm.)
