TLC for Your CAT

In addition to polychromatic leaves and bundling up in my favorite sweaters, my most cherished thing about Autumn is how snuggly my cats get. The library has an abundance of books on how to give your furry friends all the best.

Whether it is a behavioral issue or making sure your pet is healthy, these are all books I have found to be helpful and worth reading or have recommended to others successfully.

Vampires on TV

The international fascination with vampires has impacted TV programming as much as it has movie production. The most popular job for a TV vampire? Private Detective. Can you pick out the three TV shows listed that feature a vampire gumshoe?

Bette Davis Film Causes Spontaneous Kindness*

A recent, wholly unscientific study shows that 9 out of 10 acts of kindness can lead to a chain reaction of kindnesses. Even Bette Davis films can cause random acts of kindness. Witness:

On Tuesday, November 16, the Crossroads Theatre, in partnership with Fresh City Life, will be hosting a free film night. It's our monthly KnitFlix, so we'll have an area for knitters with good light, but we're also inviting non-crafters to join us for this film showing. And we're asking everyone to bring a food item or toiletries for donation to Urban Peak, the orgnaization that helps homeless youth and youth at risk of being homeless. 

Historic Colorado Homes

Colorado is rich with history and lore. Many historical figures have called Colorado home. Their houses, some now museums, offer an educational and entertaining experience for all ages. Travel back in time without leaving the state with a little help from the library.

The Central Library is within blocks of two historic homes. The Byers-Evans House Museum reflects Denver in the early 1920's and is decorated with the original furnishings. The Molly Brown House Museum celebrates the Titanic's most famous survivor and Denver during the Victorian era. These are but two of Colorado's many notable locations.

Witches & Wizards

Since Harry Potter, when we think of witches, they look more like Glenda the Good Witch than the Wicked Witch of the West from The Wizard of Oz. Whether they have tricks up their sleeve, or are a treat to be around, these witches and wizards will enchant you.

Vampire Hunters

Legend says that as long as there have been vampires, there have been vampire hunters. At least in the movies it is true. Buffy the Vampire Slayer may be the most popular of the vampire hunters, but many other films portray the dark side of vampires and those who fight them.

Dracula on Film

Count Dracula was introduced to the world by Bram Stoker in his 1891 work, Dracula. In 1931, Bela Lugosi embodied the horrific role. Dracula remains the king of the vampires, as the number of films that include a reference to "Dracula" is well over 200, according to the Internet Movie Database.
