Spring for Poetry 2017

For the eleventh successive year the Friends of the TP Library will have new posters of poems at numerous locations around Takoma Park. The posters were created by graphic design students at Montgomery College. The project was originated and is adminstered by Merrill Leffler and begins in April for National Poetry Month and continues through Takoma Park’s Street Festival in October.

For links to the 2017 poems and to all of our poems from the past, go to our Spring for Poetry page.

Library Renovation Is a Step Closer

It has just been announced that Takoma Park’s Bond Bill request for $150,000 for Library renovation has been approved!

Many thanks to Friends of the Library Board President Tim Rahn, who raced to the Library on a rainy night to testify before the State Legislature representatives in support of this Bill. Tim earned his retirement from being president!

Thanks also to Ward 1 Council Member Peter Kovar who testified in support of the Bond bill in Annapolis, and was instrumental in securing it’s approval.

We are on our way !
