The Timely Adventures of Rachel Evans: Chill and Share the Trees, Man
“How much ale did you give her, Will?” Robin nodded at her cup.
"Oh, please. This is nothing." Rachel made a stern face and then hiccupped. "This is nice, but nothing to worry about." She took a sip and smiled pleasantly at Robin Hood, who was real and standing right in front of her like it was completely normal. For him, she supposed it was.
"Very well then, Rachel-on-a-quest." Robin folded his arms against his chest. "Perhaps you would be so good as to tell me what you’re doing in my forest."
Every June we celebrate all things LEGO here at the Kearney Branch with LEGOpalooza.
It's a time for LEGO enthusiasts, young and young at heart, to gather to show off their brick creations and share ideas. The creations that come through our doors for the show are always imaginative and fun to see.
This year LEGOpalooza 2013 will be Saturday, June 8 from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m.
Many have been watching this PBS series on Sunday evenings and learning about life in the London slums during the 1950s as seen through the eyes of the young nurse-midwives serving families during the post-WW II era. At the age of 21, Jennifer Worth left her comfortable home to move into a convent and become a midwife in post war London's East End slums.
Book Club to Discuss Pulitzer Prize-Winning Author
As I read The Marriage Plot by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jeffrey Eugenides, the story hit so close to home portraying young college graduates’ first forays into the working world, love, and the search for identity that I found it painful to read. Painfully true. Painfully moving. Painfully beautiful.
Some of you may not know this, but the bridge over the I-29 exit at County Roads E and U in Camden Point is no longer there. It was demolished in the evening hours of May 10, 2013. The construction of the new bridge should take most of the summer. But we at the Camden Point Branch are still here, and the Library is open as usual. You might have to take a few scenic routes for a while, but at least the weather is nice.
Superhero comic books have been around since the 1930s, featuring Superman, Captain America, Batman, and much more. There is something about a good comic besides the artwork that seems to catch a reader’s eye. With the gentle brushwork or complex of shading, comic books are an art and a story. Comics are a great source of adventure, mystery, and even romance. Who can deny the thrilling action when Batman goes against the Joker or the complicated romance between Superman and Lois Lane?
Read Genealogy Periodicals in an Unlikely Database
The Midwest Genealogy Center has a very large selection of print (hard) copies of genealogy periodicals, necessitating a trip to the Library to read them. Two of my favorites are Internet Genealogy and Family Chronicle, and I am always delighted when the next new issue arrives here. Each issue of Internet Genealogy is full of web links you can glean genealogy information from. Family Chronicle is a good periodical to read that provides instructions for searching a wide variety of genealogical subjects and places.
Both sets of my parents have a love/hate relationship with going to the movies. Once they’re there, it’s fine, but the mere thought of spending all of that money tends to put a foul taste in their mouths. A couple of years ago, I didn’t understand this. Going to the movies was fun and totally worth spending however much money my mom or stepmom spent, but now, it’s different. When I go with my friends to the movies, I’m still really excited, but not having parents there to blow the money for me… well, it has dulled the excitement just a bit.
