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.
Hopping on the Metro with the kids and heading in to explore DC is one of the great benefits to living along the Route 1 Corridor. We recently did just so on a quest to check out “Saturday Morning at the National,” a live theatre series of free and interactive family programs at the National Theatre. Another great, indoor fun option for Route 1 Kids – with The Nutcracker coming up on Saturday, December 14th and ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas on Saturday, December 21st.
Searching for fun, free indoor spaces to explore with the kids during the colder fall and winter temps (or maybe just over Thanksgiving weekend?

More on our fun time below!
Searching for fun, free things to do near the Route 1 Corridor on Tuesday mornings with the infant, toddler and preschooler children? Tuesday Circle Time at the Takoma Park Maryland Library, full of books, songs, and rhymes, comes highly recommended from local (really, global) superstar Mandy Sheffer.
