Tonight, Thursday, September 26, the Bear Valley Branch is hosting their Mystery Book Club at 6:30 p.m. Join them for refreshments and a lively discussion. Share your favorite authors and titles. Catch up on new releases and other news! The book for this month is, The Charm School by Nelson DeMille
Come kick-it with Mr. Warren and other readers who like fun books and snacks.
We will talk about each month’s book, munch on goodies and follow it up with an activity. Register and pick up a free book at the Central Children’s Library Reference Desk. Call 720-865-1306 or email for more information. Space is limited. Reserve your spot now.
The Smiley Branch invites you to join the new Las Comadres and Friends National Latino Book Club! We will be meeting the 4th Saturday of each month at 1 p.m. starting this Saturday, May 25. Membership is open to every book lover interested in reading English-language works written by Latina and Latino authors.
We had our first meeting on Saturday (where were you?! It was only like 7 inches of snow!) and I think I can officially say that the (probably) can be changed to CAPS LOCK AWESOME! We talked about what kinds of books we like and everyone had read something that no one else had, which was super cool.
Our next meeting is Saturday, April 20 from 10-11:30 a.m. in the Burnham Hoyt book club room at the Central Library. We’re reading Glow by Amy Ryan. If you want to join us, read the book and come hang out. We’ll have coffee and donuts. If you don’t get a chance to read the book in time but want to join the book club, come by anyway. We’ll be picking books for the next sessions plus talking about the book we read. I’m pretty sure no one bites.
Teens, you've been asking for a book club at Central forever! We can finally start one!
We are going to meet on Saturday, 23 March at 10 AM to talk about what kind of book club you would like and also to pick out some books to read. We will have donuts! Awesome!
Some of you have suggested that we have a sci-fi and fantasy book club-- this can happen if you want it to. Or, we can read a bit of everything. So swing by the library with a list of books you think we should read! Bring a friend so you know that at least 2 cool people will be there. Also, we should probably have a cool name, right? So think about that too.
If you've resolved to cook more interesting meals, you've come to the right place! On Saturday, January 12 at 2 p.m. at the Smiley Branch, join Monica Kadillak for Great Finds at International Markets. Denver has many specialty markets to help you explore international cuisine! You'll learn where to go, what to look for, and of course, what to do with those new ingredients when you get home! Recipes and samples included.
Are you ready to start 2013 with some new skills or some new thoughts? Break out of your routine and into the new year with a Fresh City Life My Branch class!
Here are the offerings for Saturday, January 5:

So many possibilities that there will be a second session on January 19! 10 a.m. at Schlessman Family. Please register: 720-865-0000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join the Book Friends Forever early readers book club (K-2nd grade) for lively discussion, snacks, and crafts every month.
The Book Friends Forever meet one Wednesday a month in the Children's Pavilion at the Central Library. Our next meeting will take place on Wednesday, November 14th at 3:45 p.m. We will discuss Frindle by Andrew Clements. This funny story is about a boy who renames a pen "frindle" to spite his teacher and has to face the havoc that ensues. Frindle was unanimously voted in by all the kids in the group.
