Crafting Through Colorado History...With Bees

What does Fresh City Life My Branch have in store this week, you ask? The answer, as usual, is something for everyone!

The choices for your crafting and educational pleasure this week include:

Felting Fun on Saturday, April 2 at 10:00 a.m. at the Ross-Broadway Branch. In this introduction to needle felting you'll learn to make a basic chick and a more challenging rabbit. All supplies will be provided, and you'll go home with your own felted critters! Registration is required, call 720-865-0135 or stop by the reference desk to register.

Thinking about enhancing your garden by attracing more bees? Learn some basics with Bees! Attract Pollinators in Colorado on Saturday, April 2 at 11:00 a.m. at the Ross-Cherry Creek Branch. Bees are good for your garden and crucial to the environment. Bring them to your yard by growing the blooming plants that they love. Learn how to plant your garden for the nectar and pollen sources that bees need all season long. Bonus: Many of the recommended plants are xeric perennials that butterflies love as well!

Think you know the stories behind the prominent Denver names like Speer, Iliff, Lowry, Elitch, and Griffith? Think again! In The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly...You Think You Know Colorado History? Fairmount Heritage Foundation volunteer Tom Morton will will tell you the stories about these famous figures that didn't make it into the history books. Join us at the Schlessman Family Branch on Sunday, April 3 at 2:00 p.m. for stories from the past!

Finally, plan ahead for Sit 'n Knit on Tuesday, April 5 at 10:00 a.m. at the Bear Valley Branch. This group is open to any knitters who want to share their knowledge or learn from some pros! Fiber hosts: Kathy Orth and Charlotte Updike.

All programs are free and open to the public.
