What Do Steamy Paperbacks, Ukuleles, and Dogs All Have In Common?

They're all part of the Fresh City Life My Branch programs at your local library! Check out what's coming up this week!

Do you find yourself constantly asking people about what they are reading? Do you love talking about books, poems, and essays? The Schlessman Family Branch Library hosts a Book Chat every 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month. We chat about what we're reading and maybe even read aloud for a bit. Just sit and listen--or share! Thursday, August 15, 1:30 p.m. at the Schlessman Family Branch Library.

Do you cringe every time you have to attend your HOA meetings? The Bear Valley Branch Library is bringing you a unique and much needed program about Healthy HOA Relationships. This class is designed for all members of the HOA, including homeowners, board members, and managers. Step into your next HOA meeting with confidence! Saturday, August 17 at 6 p.m. at the Bear Valley Branch Library.

Not only are the holidays approaching (ugh, did we just say that??), but decorating at anytime is fun! Make a 6' fabric garland for your home. All supplies provided. Please register: 720-865-0955 or fclmybranch@denverlibrary.org. Saturday, August 17 at 10 a.m. at the Ross-University Hills Branch Library.

Do you love Mumford & Sons, The Lumineers, or quintessential Hawaiian ukulele tunes? Have you secretly always wanted to learn to play the ukulele? Now's your chance! Neighborhood Music Stapleton is hosting a beginner ukulele jam for adults. Learn to play the simple chords and melodies of popular songs and be introduced to Hawaiian ukulele favorites. Bring your own uke, or borrow one of ours. Saturday, August 17, 11 a.m. at the Sam Gary Branch Library.

Think that training your pet is too hard? Learn how easy and fun it can be, using the positive clicker training method. At our Click and Learn with the Denver Dumb Friends League class, you'll learn the basics, see some demonstrations, and be ready to start training your dog--or cat--when you get home. Humans only, please. Sunday, August 18, 2 p.m. at the Sam Gary Branch Library.
