Are you ready to rock? Join us on Thursday, June 30 at 4 p.m. in the Central Library, Level B2 Conference Center for a free concert with Harry and the Potters!
Imagine if Harry Potter quit the quidditch team and instead started using the power of rock and roll to fight evil. This is Harry and the Potters: the original wizard rock band! Join us as they return to the Denver Public Library on their first tour of libraries since they last visited us back in 2007. Paul and Joe DeGeorge started this band in 2002 when Joe was 15 and Paul was 23. They played their first show in a shed in their parent’s backyard.
Celebrate summer with Fresh City Life My Branch this week!
Does summer mean relaxing with a good book? Then try the Between the Covers Book Discussion Group on Tuesday, June 21 at 2:00 p.m. at the Ross-Cherry Creek Branch. We'll be discussing Spooner by Pete Dexter.
Denver Public Library's popular Summer of Reading program is in full swing for 2011. Make sure the kids and teens in your life sign up online or at any branch library location through July 30.
For many years, Summer of Reading has been a great way to encourage kids and teens reading during their summer break. Keeping young readers engaged and curious about reading and learning prepares them for the upcoming school year by acting as a bridge to keep literacy and comprehension skills sharp. Also, it doesn't hurt that there are incentives to encourage our little bookworms to keep at it.
