Central Library transforms into a French cathedral for Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons concert With Altius Quartet. Like a winter concert in churches like St. Chapelle or St. Germain des Pres, Denver Public Library hosts a classical music concert as the capstone of the 2015 performance season.
We had a great first session of the new adult Sci-Fi and Fantasy book club! There is a pretty even divide between Planners and People Who Don't Know What Planning Is (I'm emphatically in the second camp) so as a compromise, we're planning about 3 months in advance. I may have done some breathing exercises to handle the forethought required.
The weather is cooling, the leaves are turning, and all around the city costumes and decorations are being prepared for Halloween. Join us Friday, October 30, from 3-6 p.m. for a trick or treat extravaganza at the Central Library! Staff will be handing out treats throughout the building, and there will be storytelling under the derrick in Western History/Genealogy, maker madness in the ideaLab, and games and crafts in the Children’s Library.
The first meeting of the Central Library's Sci-Fi and Fantasy book club is Tuesday, 6 October from 6:45-8 p.m. We're meeting in the 1st floor book club room which is in the Burhnam Hoyt room (where the new books are) on the NE side of the Library.
Meet movie actress Rutanya Alda (Deer Hunter, Amityville Horror 2) at her premiere book signing at Denver Public Library.

The A-maze-ing After-Hours Harry Potter Party is just around the corner! On Friday, September 25th from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Central Library families are invited to discover the secrets hidden in our giant Harry Potter Triwizard cardboard maze and nosh on tasty Honeydukes snacks. The maze will be big enough for families to explore together. This is a family event. No unaccompanied adults or kids, please.

SO OH MY GOSH WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?!
We're going to meet on either a Monday or Tuesday evening from 6:30 or 7 to 8. Please leave a comment saying what would be the best day and time for you. I'm thinking the first Monday or Tuesday because that's pretty easy to remember.
