**Notes on location and travel:  The DC Takoma Park Library is a 5 minute walk just south of the Takoma Station on the Red Line. Please do not confuse this library with the Takoma Park library in Takoma Park, MD.   Please allow a little extra time to get there due to disruptions caused by Metro’s SafeTrak program on the Red Line this week.
