Today the library offers books and more, including computers and Internet access, and children's story hours for ages 12 months to age 5. Day care centers and other groups are welcome to call 703-746-1703, extension 5, to arrange for an age-appropriate program. A book discussion group meets the second Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m.
