Have You Seen the Yeti Yet?

Book cover, The Thing About Yetis

There have been Yeti sightings at the Green Valley Ranch branch! Library staff brought the snow inside this year for our Walking in a Winter Wonderland program. The snowy (but warm!) corridors of the maze seem to have attracted a young Yeti. Come to the Green Valley Ranch branch any time this week (Dec. 20-26) during regular business hours* to explore the maze and take your picture with our friendly Yeti.

Get Caught Reading Banned Books

Banned Books Mugshot

I am guilty of reading subversive literature filled to the brim with dangerous ideas and inflammatory language. I have been committing illicit acts of reading since I was a child, though my teen years were my most seditious. Yet I have never been arrested, or had to smuggle in a restricted book. I have always enjoyed the right to read freely and that is why I celebrate Banned Books Week.

This year Banned Books Week is September 22-28 and I encourage you to visit your local Denver Public Library branch and get caught reading banned books! If you have your mug shot photo taken with your favorite banned book, be sure to share it with us on the DPL facebook page.
