I always love hearing about the inspiring efforts to build libraries or bring books to children in third world countries, such as the Donkey Mobile Libraries and The Camel Bookmobile (fiction based on a true story). Turns out a nonprofit group here in Arvada is doing the same thing.  They are called SCOPE International, and among other projects, they develop school and community libraries in Kenya.  They have an exhibit of bright and interesting photographs on the display wall at Standley Lake this month, and they are having a reception this Saturday, July 13 at 2:00 in the Standley Lake meeting room.  Come learn more about their noble endeavors and adventures!

Do you believe in the Easter Bunny?  Jack Frost?  How about the Tooth Fairy or Santa Clause?  Well, the Rise of the Guardian movie has them all! 


The Standley Lake Library will be showing this movie on Saturday, June 29 at 11:00 am on the big screen in the meeting room.  Bring a pillow or blanket and snacks to enjoy while watching.  No tickets required!

Did you know that there is also a book about the Rise of the Guardians?  You can ask for it to come to the library nearest you by clicking on "Request" at the top of the page.

Have you ever wanted to get a tattoo?  Now is your opportunity to get a temporary tattoo with henna!  Create your own design and then temporarily tattoo it with Henna.  Henna is a dye created with the crushed leaves of the Henna bush.

Butterflies are beautiful, delicate and very, very HUNGRY little beasties!  You should do your very best to cater them a lovely meal -- somewhere nice... like the alley behind your house!  Or maybe that yucky patch of dirt on the corner of Somewhere and There.  Or maybe over yonder in that big empty field behind Great Wall of Ugly -- just toss a SeeD Bomb full of LoVe and watch the MAGIC happen!* 

Join us at Arvada Library today to let your Inner Gardening Guerilla out -- Make SEED BOMBS and spread the BEAUTY!

Tuesday, May 28th @ 4:30pm.

*MAGIC not instantaneous.  They're seeds.  They take time. But you know what I mean...  EVENTUALLY it will be MAGICAL. Or at least pretty.

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:

Standley Lake Library on Saturday, May 11th at 2pm
