Last week we had some exciting times in the Matthews Library! On Tuesday we had a coloring, cookies, and chill session with high school students. We decided that it would be fun to offer up a space where folks could come and relax during lunch…and, yanno, sharpen up their coloring skills.
We also had the 7th Grade science class in the library to work on their biomes projects. Look how productive they are!
And last Friday was World Food Day (a day of action against hunger). This year we were honored to have a guest speaker, Chef Matt Masera of the recently opened Empress Tavern and the critically acclaimed vegetarian restaurant on K Street, Mother. Chef Matt talked about his adventures in the cooking industry, how he got his start, and finished up with a really cool story about a baby alligator. Chef Matt has worked for Tyler Florence as a Corporate Pastry Chef as well as the Chef de Cuisine at Florence’s flagship restaurant, Wayfare Tavern.
