Fresh City Life My Branch This Week--Grow Your Mind!

How do you want to grow your mind this week? By sharing your love of books with other readers? Learning about the Civil War? How about a cooking class? We have that and more with Fresh City Life My Branch.

Feed your mind AND your body by learning how to cook with all the wonderful bounty available at this time of year in Cooking from the Farmer's Market on Tuesday, September 11 at 6 p.m. at the Ross-Cherry Creek Branch. Monica Kadillak will inspire you with ideas for all those fresh fruits, veggies, and herbs that are plentiful at the farmer's market or in your own garden! Recipes and samples included.

Keep reading alive in your life with our Read Aloud Group for Lifelong Readers, every Thursday morning at 10:30 a.m. at the Schlessman Family Branch, starting this Thursday, September 13. A librarian will read essays, short stories, or poetry aloud, and we will stop periodically for discussion and reflection. Perfect for adults who are experiencing difficulty with reading as they get older (because of vision problems or dementia, for example). Also for folks who simply want a social outlet that revolves around books. All book lovers are welcome!

Are you a Civil War buff, or do you simply want to learn more about this period in American history? We have several Civil War events this week for you to choose from:

Making Sense of the American Civil War, a 5-part reading and discussion series, starts this Thursday, September 13, at 5:30 p.m. at the Ross-University Hills Branch. Please register: 720-865-0955 or For more information about the series, click here.
