In celebration of Mexican culture and Cinco de Mayo, Fresh City Life hosts a stand just outside our west entrance. Come by to sample some traditional aguas frescas (which means fresh waters), light and refreshing beverages made from fruit juices, fresh fruit and other natural ingredients. We’ll also have all of our button makers on hand so that you can create a cool button or magnet commemorating the day. All free and open to the public.
Saturday, May 2, noon-4 p.m., Acoma Plaza near the west entrance of Central Library https://www.denverlibrary.org/fresh
Starring Charlton Heston, Edward G. Robinson, and Leigh Taylor. Directed by Richard Fleischer. “Richard Fleischer’s Soylent Green is a good, solid science-fiction movie, and a little more. It tells the story of New York in the year 2022, when the population has swollen to an unbelievable 80 million, and people live in the streets and line up for their rations of water and Soylent Green. That’s a high-protein foodstuff allegedly made from plankton cultivated in the seas. But is it?” – Roger Ebert.

If you are a beginning knitting student and you’d like to increase your skill level and broaden your technique base, come by the Fresh City Lounge on Friday afternoons and check into our baby blanket knitting class. With only two skeins of yarn and a pair of needles, you’ll create a lovely receiving blanket for a gift or for yourself. Our talented teacher, Margaret Williams, will be here to guide you through to the last stitch. There is no cost for the instruction and a nominal investment for the materials that you purchase in our Fresh City Lounge. No registration required, but recommended.
Every Monday evening the Fresh City Lounge is open for freestyle stitchers to come in and enjoy the company of other knitters.
We also accept walk-in students who'd like to learn how to knit or crochet. Our teacher will host up to six beginning students in either discipline, first-come, first-served. No materials or tools or registration needed for this introductory workshop and students are welcome to return on successive Monday nights until they are 'freestyling,' too!
