Join us at Standley Lake and Arvada Libraries to welcome the Arvada Police Department as they give a brief introduction to their SHARP course.

The Sexual Harassment and Rape Prevention (SHARP) course has been specifically designed to meet the needs of women, teaching principles and strategies for effectively reducing the likelihood of assault through actual techniques for countering an attack. Utilizing efficient and effective methods of subject control that do not rely on size and strength, PPCT Management Systems, Inc. has developed a training system that can be used by just about everyone who is interested in personal safety.

In other words, just because you are small and female, doesn't mean you can't defend yourself!

Participants will be able to learn more about signing up for the three session course, which is free to Arvada residents at the following events:

This monthly creative writing group gives teens the opportunity to think outside the box and have work critiqued in a friendly, open-minded atmosphere. The class will be led by author and blogger Shelby Yaffe, whose flash fiction piece "Three Things I Never Did After That Summer" was featured in Flash 101: Surviving the Fiction Apocalypse.

This month's Read It / See It at Arvada Library is based on Victor Hugo's 1865 novel, Les Misérables.  Long considered one of the greatest novels ever written, Les Misérables follows the life of ex-convict, Jean Valjean, who becomes a force for social justice and compassion in a France that is rife with extreme poverty and class disparities. 

The novel has been adapted to the stage and screen many times throughout the years, with one of the most famous being the 1980 stage adaption by Claude-Michel Schonberg and Alain Boubel which ran from March 1987 to May 2003 with 6,680 performances!

We shall see the most recent adaption starring Hugh Jackman, Russel Crowe, Amanda Seyfried and Anne Hathaway.  Please join us! 

Saturday, April 13 @ 1:00pm

Tweens, Teens and their Grown-ups Welcome!
