As a teenager, I went to a private school which did not provide hot meals most days.
I remember the regular scramble to pack 5 sack lunches – 4 for children (me and my siblings) and 1 for my mother. If you find yourself in the same situation, hopefully one of the books below will slightly ease the school lunch scramble.
Are you a parent attempting to get your children ready to go back to school?
Children and teens may have spent hours reading to earn prizes through the Summer of Reading Program, but what do they need to know to be ready for math or science or any other subject? We have two series of books which can assist parents in knowing what their children need to know. Amy James has written Kindergarten Success through Fourth Grade Success.

Want to see the best sights while travelling? Denver Public Library can help.
I just returned from a vacation during which my parents and I used several books to determine which sights to see. Quality books on a destination can be invaluable. DPL has a wide variety of books to check out. If you tend to want to purchase books, you can always check out ours in order to determine which books you wish to buy. We attempt to have the most current (including 2011) guides available, but please check them out early since many individuals already know about these resources.
Jacqueline Winspear is the author of the Maisie Dobbs mystery series. I have enjoyed two previous Maisie Dobbs novels. Currently I’m listening to all of the ones I’ve missed before listening/reading the latest one A Lesson in Secrets.

As a new librarian I wondered which customers I should offer large print to. I didn’t want to offend anyone. My question was answered soon after I started working when a young woman who appeared to be in her 20’s needed large print books to run on her treadmill and read. For almost 10 years, I’ve asked customers if they needed large print. If you need additional large print books the Colorado Talking Book Library may be able to help. We have children books in large print too.
Parks are wonderful places to play, hike, skateboard, play with a dog, take a walk, spend time with a significant other or do a variety of other activities. With many trees just beginning to flower, it is a great time to plan a visit so you can dream of summer. DPL has books and DVDs about state and national parks here in Colorado.
I live with a neurological disorder called cerebral palsy (cp). There are several types of cp and I have a rare type called ataxic. It affects my balance (I still use the railing when I descend stairs), my speech is not perfectly clear (I don’t mind repeating what I say), and I sometimes have a tremor when I use my hands. CP is not progressive and it doesn’t hurt for me to move – it just is a bit slower.
