Need to get some work done but could use a change of scenery? Then Route One Fun reader Kate G. has a recommendation for you: Drive to your local PGCMLS parking lot – where free, drive-up WiFi is available 24/7! And if you happen to go to the New Carrollton branch, the tall trees and green fields will have you feeling relaxed before you even send your first email. Thanks for the tip, Kate!
Dig local history? Then put a visit to the Laurel Museum on your list! The free museum reopens for in-person visits this Saturday, June 26th at noon with updated exhibits sharing Laurel’s history as well as its social justice work. And while you’re in Laurel, why not check out some lovely small businesses in this city, including divine coffee at Sip at C Street Flats followed by a visit to the Laurel Public Library (and its amazing kids room). Still got more energy? Take a walk/run along Laurel’s Riverfront Park, which is right behind Sip. You’re welcome!
Heads-up to our fellow PGCPS families: Free COVID-19 Vaccines for PGCPS students (ages 12+) & their families at select high schools from Monday, June 7 through Tuesday, June 15th.

Yahoo! PGCMLS has resumed its curbside pickup service! Having access to new (and new-to-us) books has been a Godsend during these COVID-times. While the library’s digital books have remained accessible, there really is nothing like curling up with and turning the pages of an actual book.
