It’s bag day at the Library of Congress. As part of its annual book sale, which ends today, you can fill an entire bag with books for $5.
Books have been donated by employees at the library — and are not actually Library of Congress books — and proceeds benefit the general fund of the Combined Federal Campaign.
Stop by the Madison Building (101 Independence Ave. SE), in the first floor atrium from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. It’s open to the general public, but you'll need to bring cash or a check.
She said yes!

The Botanic Garden is hosting Bat Bonanza on Saturday to celebrate Halloween. The invite says: “Come as a bat, come as a plant pollinated by a bat, or simply join us and learn about bats! There will be bat-related activities throughout the Conservatory — come and learn why bats matter!”
It’s free, no registration required, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 100 Maryland Ave. SW.
