Library Card Month…and John C. Fremont Library September Events

JohnSFremont Library

Did you know that September is Library Card Month? If you sign up for a new Los Angeles Public Library card, and share a photo of it and the books you check out on Instagram, you could win tickets to a Los Angeles Kings hockey game.  See the link above for details.

But don’t forget that our neighborhood libraries are one of our best community resources all year round – there’s always something going on, for neighbors of all ages.  Here’s the September schedule for the John C. Fremont library:

You are cordially invited to join us for a delightful afternoon of stories and tea. Wear your finest washable tea party apparel, and come prepared to decorate a cookie and hobnob. Children of all ages welcome.
