2015 National Library Week Celebration: A Renaissance Affair (April 27 - May 1, 2015)

This National Library Week, your library invites you to celebrate the genre that whisks you away from the everyday to a time and place far away, one of swords and sorcery, quests and creatures, danger and discovery, and absolutely no friendly vampires: High Fantasy! The era which serves as the inspiration for so many high fantasy tropes coincided with a time when people believed that dragons existed in forms that were not komodo, frilled, fly, lilly, metaphorical, or you and your classmates, a time capped off by the Renaissance. All this week, visit your library before school and during lunch to enjoy Renaissance Festivities:

  • Monday: Jousting!
  • Tuesday: Fortune Telling with Madame Oubetcha!
  • Wednesday: Quoits!
  • Thursday: Photo Booth!
  • Friday: Wii Renaissance Games!
