What is the best thing to do during the long cold winter months? Why, read of course! Anyone who is a Book Person (and aren’t we all) can tell you that the best way to spend a cold day is curled up with a good book, listening to some tunes and sipping from a steaming mug of tea.
Senate Bill 13-251, The Colorado Road and Community Safety Act, authorizes driver's licenses, instruction permits, or identification cards to be issued to individuals who are either unable to demonstrate lawful presence in the U.S., or can demonstrate only temporary lawful presence.
The Denver Public Library's Services to New Immigrants team is offering a number of free workshops at several locations to assist immigrants with questions related to citizenship, Colorado's driver's license law, SB 13-251, and the recently passed Executive Actions on Immigration.
In Fall 2014, DPL incorporated immigrant services at two new locations in metro Denver: Byers Branch Library in the Santa Fe Art District and Athmar Park Branch Library in Southwest Denver. New communities were able to gain access to information, and tap on existing community resources and support at this critical time of their lives.
At the Park Hill Branch Library, instead of a Teen Book Club, we have a Teen B.U.I.L.D. club. B.U.I.L.D. stands for Believe, Understand, Imagine, Learn, Discover or Build Unrealistic Items and Live Destiny or Build Useless Ideas, Later Destroy or maybe something else entirely different. We're kind of loose with what the acronym stands for but what it boils down to is once a month Teens get together at Park Hill and we make something creative together. Sometimes it involves creative writing, sometimes it involves visual art, usually its a mixture of both.
This time of year we all spend a lot of time buzzing around - shopping, going to holiday parties and attending holiday events. Sometimes this constant non-stop list of activities make it very hard to actually enjoy the season. If you are having a hard time getting into the spirit, join us this Saturday, December 13th for some fun holiday programming!
There is something about winter weather that makes me want to cook and bake. When it gets cold outside I start to dream about soups and stews, casseroles and all kinds of yummy meals. I start to browse cookbooks and collect ingredients for my favorite cookies. If you are at all like me, we have a great week coming up for Engage Programming.
