See Designs for Future Library! at Bown Crossing
Our newest branch library, the Library! at Bown Crossing, is getting closer! We expect to break ground late this year. This month, we’ve scheduled two open house design review sessions for the public. They’ll be held on Tuesday, May 12, and Wednesday, May 13, from 4:00-7:00 p.m. in the Riverside Elementary School’s cafeteria. We’ll also be posting the designs on our website and taking comments online starting Monday, May 4, and running through Sunday, May 17. Let us know what you think!
Kids Film Festival – Show Time!
Be there as we roll out the red carpet to all our young filmmakers and audience! This spring, we invited the creative kids of our community to submit short films for the Library’s First Annual Kids Filmmaker Festival. Be sure to join us for the results at this fantastic screening on Saturday, May 9!
Special May Dates & Observances:
Kids and Technology
Do you have a toddler? Here’s a chance to learn about and explore different educational iPad apps that will stimulate your child's development. Older kids, kindergarten through 5th grade, can “Spring Into Code” and computer science most Fridays or Saturdays, or try out our 3D printers on 3D Thursdays. (The printers are available to adults, too.)
Art, Writing and Activities for Adults
Time to play! Check out our art programs for adults, jump-start your memoir, or try Chi Kung. Rumi Night is back, our Genealogy Series continues, and there’s also an astronomy program and a gaming tournament. (The last two are for all ages.)
Meet Mark Twain, learn how author Kara Richardson Whitely climbed Kilimanjaro weighing 300 pounds, and hear about local author Kelly Jones’ latest thriller, Lost and Found in Prague.
