Two Words: STAN LEE
Yes! That’s right fearless fans, Stan Lee will be at Denver Comic Con May 31st – June 2, 2013. If you didn’t get a chance to go to the inaugural DCC last year, definitely make an effort to go this year.
There are great booths to visit, artists to chat with, and panels to sit in on to learn all the ins and outs of your favorite graphic novels and comics. And of course you don’t want to miss the cosplay, cuz it’s so much fun! (Remember! If your costume has a ‘gun’ – you need to have an orange tip attached…just sayin’.)
Other featured guests for the three day event include: George Takei, Greg Guler, Felicia Day, George Perez, Wil Wheaton, Jeffrey Brown . . . Tickets for Teens range from $12 for a one day Friday pass to $30 for a three day pass.
The Stan Lee Silver and Gold Add On packages will be available later at a mysterious price to be determined later. So get your tickets now, and then check the website compulsively until they post the Stan Lee info!
If you go, and you’re in costume, make sure you post a pix on our Facebook page! Hope to see you!
Hooray! I feel like I've been waiting forever for this. We're going to be making marshmallow catapults at the Columbine Library!
Monday, March 11, 4pm
No need to sign up--just come by. Open to all teens ages 11-18.
Teen Night: Movie and Zombie Felties
Friday, March 8
We'll be making zombie felties and watching a related movie. The movie is a remake of a 1984 short film of the same name (which traumatized me when I saw it as a kid), about a boy and his dog, Sparky. The new version was an Academy Award nominee for Best Animated Feature. Can you guess the title?
How much do you love reading? Do you love it enough to spread the joy to others?
Check out World Book Night. It's a non-profit, one night event that happens all across the country. Givers, who volunteer to participate, pick up a box of 20 copies of their chosen book and give them away to people who are not regular readers. That might be people at a bus stop, people at a football game, wherever you can think of!
Sound amazing? It totally is, I did it last year and gave away 20 copies of Ender's Game on the 16th Street Mall in Denver.
Many Jeffco Libraries will be pickup locations, complete with a party for givers!
YOU can apply to be a giver! Check out the details and apply now.
"Even if you get nothing else accomplished today, you have done something wonderful for your baby by being here!"
This is how I often start Baby Time. It's 20 minutes of early literacy skills cleverly disguised as play for the 0-2 year-old crowd. Songs, rhymes, stories, scarves and bells are just part of the fun. We also learn how to share, put our toys away and communicate. Parents and caregivers not only bond with their children but get to share experiences and talk to other grown-ups!
Baby Time is my favorite time of day. Visit your Jeffco library for Baby Time and make it your favorite time as well! We hope to see you soon!
