Yes, it's true! Downton Abbey concludes its second season on PBS and we’re in for a long wait before the third season arrives next year.
After winning a list of awards, including Emmy and Golden Globe awards for Outstanding Miniseries, Downton Abbey groupies are pondering how to manage during the interim.
To help us through the rough patch, we have compiled a list of titles (books and films) to keep you entertained. Whether you’re in the mood for Downton-style storytelling or non-fiction that examines life and relationships in an Edwardian country house, the Library has something for everyone.
Do you have a resume that looks like you typed it one-handed and blind-folded on a typewriter in 1986? Worse yet, do you not have a resume at all and you're on the job hunt?
Nowadays a resume is a must, whether you're looking for a contractor gig or applying to be the next CEO of Apple. Never fear, we’re here to help! The CTC’s resident job seeking experts have created a Resume Basics class designed to give you the know-how to create a sleek, professional resume that highlights your good sides and downplays your not-so-good sides.
We’re launching a branch new series of Library Love Stories this February in honor of Valentine’s Day.
Kelly Brough, President and CEO of the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce, grew up using her public library in rural Montana. Her family didn’t have a lot of money, and the Library provided her with a way to learn about the world, for free.
Fifty years ago in the early 1960's, the Civil Rights Movement was gaining national attention. But unbeknownst to many, African Americans had been working to gain political and economic rights for almost a century. A growing sense of urgency fanned the fire, rooted in the belief that change could wait no longer.
Laws enacted in many southern state legislatures known as Jim Crow laws continued to separate the races in restaurants, schools, theaters, parks and other public facilities. Outrage over poll taxes and the lack of voting rights for blacks brought waves of college students from the north in a massive push to register black voters particularly in Mississippi. Marches, protests, and interventions by the National Guard were becoming commonplace in the South.
Teen Tech Week is March 4th - 10th. As it gets closer, I want to highlight some of the neat things you can do with the programs installed on the public PCs at your local branch, starting with some image editing in a program called GIMP.
GIMP is free software for manipulating images and is installed on all of our public PCs. You can find it in the Start menu under Utilities.
It is a very robust, powerful program that you can spend a lot of time getting to know. (See the documentation and some tutorials at gimp.org/docs.) What I want to share with you is a very simple and specific procedure: creating an animated gif like the one at the top of this post.
Frock Out's guest judge, Fallene Wells, has her dreams in sight!
I'm really excited that Fallene Wells, one of Denver's most talented designers and a graduate of the fast-paced reality competition Project Runway, will be our star judge for Frock Out 3. Though she's busy with a handful of really challenging projects of her own, Fallene didn't hesitate when asked to participate in Frock Out 2012.
