Two Month Partnership with Rosslyn BID
Did you attend the Rosslyn READS! Spring Book Festival in April? The Library returns to Rosslyn in August and September, as we partner with the Rosslyn BID to bring programs for all ages to The Alcove, a pop-up space near the Rosslyn Metro.
“The Library is excited to partner again with the Rosslyn BID,” said Diane Kresh, Director, Arlington Public Library. “This private-public partnership enables us to engage with the Rosslyn community in new ways to offer a cross-section of Library programs for a wide range of ages and interests. Everything from DIY maker programs to story times and author talks.”
