Central Library hosts the duo Cabanting and Cline this weekend for the Saturday Session in the great hall. Their original music has a lilting, joyful sound that mixes traditional strains with contemporary passages for a very modern, eclectic collection of songs.
Cabanting and Cline
Saturday, July 12, 2-3 p.m.
Central Library, Level 1 Schlessman Hall
Chelsea Cabanting and James Cline will rock the house, performing selections from “True Elf Beauties,” Cline’s album of duos for Ukulele and guitar.
I was listening to Stevie Wonder's Songs in the Key of Life on our new record player recently and the track "Black Man" came on. I have to admit that I didn't really know this one but it's great, just like the entire album is great.
Fresh City Life, adult cultural programming for Central Library, has put together an exciting calendar of free noon concerts for downtowners to break out of their cubicles and enjoy the best that Denver's music scene offers. Leave your cubicle jungle behind for an hour and join us for our summer music series. With a gorgeous view of the park, and access to our balcony, you’ll be serenaded while you have lunch. Grab some food on the way and our friends at Whole Foods Market will supply something sweet to send you back to the office in a state of bliss.
Have you been wanting to learn Excel? The Central Library offers Excel Basics every month, followed by several modules at the same time the following weeks.

Due to popular demand, the critically acclaimed series from the library's Literary Bureau, "What We're Reading," is back. Our tireless researchers have read books on their lunch hours, breaks and even at home in order to share their findings.
Anytime is the right time to explore history. The 100th anniversary of “the greatest war” evokes cries from ghostly trenches. An assassination may have sparked World War I but a blueprint for conflict existed long before the first shot. This war gave us shell shock, machine guns, and "a lost generation."
Watching a lot of World Cup games has been and will continue to be a lot of fun and exciting... and entertaining. I've heard a few groans about how there's way too much drama and bodies flopping all over the field. It doesn't bother me too much and it certainly doesn't make me NOT want to watch as much as I can.
Every four years, billions of people tune in to watch countries from around the globe compete in the World Cup, one of the largest international tournaments outside of the Olympics. Much like the Olympics, this is an opportunity for national pride to swell as you root for your home country. Whether you are a soccer (or dare I say, football?) aficionado, or just recently realized that the U.S. even had a team, it is a chance for strangers to band to together and even learn more about our neighbors from other nations.
The Fresh City Life documentary series, What's Up, Doc? continues this Tuesday with the presentation of Sarah Polley's inventive film, Stories We Tell. It's a movie that hits close to home for many viewers -- about the relationship between family members and how each of them views the details of a life together in very different ways. The film reminds me of something that my sister often says to me when I'm telling stories about our growing up.
