Want to get a jump-start on upcoming deals? Meet the major D.C. players at one of our upcoming events!
Friday, we went to Create. Drink. Be Merry. at the Dream Lab at MLK Library. Here, DC Public Library Foundation executive director Linnea Hegarty, DCPLF board member Sara Conway and DC Public Library executive director Richard Reyes-Gavilan.
Guests enjoyed spiked cider, beer, soft drinks and snacks in The Labs, and they got to make holiday gifts with materials from the DC Public Library Fab Lab, including a laser cutter and 3D printed ornaments, earrings and cufflinks, holiday stationery and Mason jar candle holders. Here, EPA's Charmaine Hanson and Kara Welch.
The event's donations go to support library programs that bridge the digital and economic divide, promote early literacy and summer reading, and celebrate the District's cultural vibrancy. Here, editor Sasha Mushegian and APHIS' Sarah Stella.
The DC Public Library Foundation partners with the DC Public Library to provide a margin of excellence to the city's public libraries. Here, Cancer Action Network's Brittany Larson, DNC's Katja Greeson and MoveOn.org's Emma Einhorn.
