Teens! You asked for it, now it’s here! Come to the library to eat pizza and watch a movie this Thursday the 9th at 5:30 in the DePaola room.
We can’t tell you which movie yet, but I will say that I have really been into movies like Divergent, Pitch Perfect, Frozen, and the Hunger Games lately…hmmm. I wonder what we might watch? Come find out!
This month The Poetry Group meeting will be in the Library Arts Center gallery so that we can be inspired by their “POETRY: The Poet and the Painter” event. For more details on this event visit the Library Arts Center on the web at http://www.libraryartscenter.org/exhibits
International Talk Like A Pirate Day was a lot of fun! We found this old Treasure Map, showing the way to the Book of Pirates!
Some brave souls took the challenge and set out to add their names to the Book of Pirates!
The treasure map will likely remain at the library for a few more days, if you want to come give it a try. Today is LEGO Family Fun! So come on in to have some fun building!
Come to the library to find displays of books for young people that are frequently challenged and even banned from some schools and libraries. We have to keep reading this important literature! It’s our first amendment right to have access to information without limitation and censorship. The Richards Free Library will be celebrating our Right to Read all week. It’s a great time to check out Huckleberry Finn, To Kill a Mockingbird, or even Captain Underpants. Look for our brand new copy of Sherman Alexie’s The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian, another frequently challenged book!
Blow me down, the ship’s becalmed!
This Friday is International Talk Like a Pirate Day!
We’ll be having a bit of pirate fun here at the library, so don’t ferget yer pirate talk!
If you don’t know any Pirate, that’s alright! The Library has a resource called Mango Languages. You can find it right here on the home page– just click on the picture above! Or, just look to the right. It’s under “Online Library.” You don’t have to sign in to use it here at the library, just click “Quick Start.” If “Pirate” doesn’t show up as a featured language, select “All languages” and look under the “P’s” for “Pirate.”
Mango is a real language-learning resource, and you can really learn how to speak just like a pirate, and have a lot of fun! (It’s also a great resource for learning real languages, like Spanish.)
