The Rosedale Library has lots of children's programming this month: including those in honor of Black History Month and in celebration of Valentine's Day and President's Day. There are programs honoring author Mo Williams, Family Story Times, the February edition of the "Reel Reading Children's Book Club" and more.
One extra special event is this Monday, at 10:30 a.m., when the National Symphony Orchestra (NSO) will bring their orchestral instruments for children and their parents to see and touch. This hands-on fun with the instruments that NSO members play during their concerts is a project of the Women's Committee for the National Symphony Orchestra.
Other programs this month include:
NSO in your neighborhood will be at Rosedale Public Library at 6:30pm tomorrow, January 9th! This a free event and all are welcome. Hope to see you there.
This a reminder that the historic tour of the Rosedale neighborhood is tomorrow, Saturday, October 26th.
The tour starts at 10 a.m. at the Rosedale Library (1701 Gales Street NE) and will run for about 1 to 1-1/2 hours.
Rosedale is roughly bounded by 15th and 19th Streets, between Benning Road and C Street NE. The tour will focus on the oldest parts of the neighborhood, including Gales, Kramer and Rosedale Streets. The buildings in the neighborhood represent a wide range of architectural styles, such as 19th Century wood-frame victorian duplexes, and the brick townhouses of the 1920s and will highlight buildings designed/constructed by notable Washington builders and architects.. The tour will include examples of various bricks/bricklaying techniques; roof and porch types; and inlaid and 'pressed' design elements on facades, as well as a history of the Rosedale neighborhood....many people don't know that it joined DC long after the original city was laid out!
