Book Cases

 Top secret folder popping out of the library stacks

Book Cases is a series of mystery and adventure events for DC middle school students.  Each event centers on a different theme, but each time 25 youth work together to crack a case using their research, technology, and critical thinking skills to solve a mystery straight out of the Smithsonian Libraries stacks.  

A note for parents and guardians: Book Cases events always happen on in-services days when students aren't in school. It's our way of providing fun, educational programming for your young detectives while you're at work. 

Book Case Event dates:
November 6, 2018. Theme: Strange Things 
March 8, 2019.  Theme: Harry Potter (more info coming soon)
May 28, 2019. Theme: Art Heist  (more info coming soon)
