This week, my team and I visited the Van Nuys, Panorama City, and Sun Valley libraries to celebrate the holidays with children from across the District.
Having grown up in the community and currently raising my own daughter here, I know how important community events are to the families here. Children enjoyed storybook characters, book readings, arts and crafts and games with friends. And as a thank you to the children and their families for joining, each child left with snacks, a book and a backpack to take home. Nearly 200 children joined us with their parents joining as well. It was the perfect way to end 2014 and celebrate the holidays with the families that make the Sixth District wonderful.
