Families may also take advantage of critical services, including flu shots for adults and immunization and dental screenings for children, administered through the District Department of Health (DOH). The Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) will offer sports and games, and the District of Columbia Public Library (DCPL) will have a story time booth for younger children. The Office of the Chief Technology Officer (OCTO) will also be on-hand with their Mobile Tech Lab to provide information on low-cost internet and other technology services available to District residents.
