Rally at the Anancostia Public Library

Thursday, September 7, 2006

5:00pm to 7:30pm

We were rained out last week, but we won’t be deterred by the weather this week so we can standup and demand that Anacostia Library be reopened NOW!

Anacostia Library History >>Click here

As long as it is closed, City leadership should realize the educational outcomes of our young citizens will be jeopardized and the opportunity for our adults to get accessible GED, literacy training, and career empowerment simply does not exist.

TWO YEARS IS TOO LONG!!

Come on out to rally for the immediate reopening of Anacostia Library and bring your friends and children…

* Keynote speakers

* Children’s activities and reading-time

* Food and beverages will be served

* Open mic for ALL – step up to the podium and speak!
