The festivities mark the expansion of the Schwarzman Family Library, Planet Word’s one-of-a-kind, interactive gallery space that brings beloved books to life. A schedule of events and information about how to reserve free, timed admission, may be found below or ONLINE HERE.
“Planet Word’s 30 interactive galleries and stations celebrate all facets of words and language, but our Library holds a special place in visitors’ hearts.

I’m writing in the hopes you can share about the free produce distribution that Common Good City Farm is doing every Wednesday from 4pm-6pm at their farm in LeDroit Park (300 V St NW). I’m a volunteer there and want to make sure the city knows about this effort- access to healthy food is so important, especially if you’re out protesting! The farm is distributing pre-packaged boxes (for food safety/Covid reasons) of fresh, organic produce from farms around the DMV area, completely free. Last week, boxes included broccoli, salad greens, sweet potatoes, rhubarb, and more. This will change weekly, but it’s always a great selection! Read More
