Another busy night at Fairmount; Games, New Moon, & Foreign Films!

Another busy night at Fairmount; Games, New Moon, & Foreign Films!

new-moon1First off, there are two exciting teen events scheduled for this afternoon and this evening.  At 3:00 is the ever popular “Get Your Game On!”  At this unique event, teens can play console games like the Wii and PS2, and challenge other teens to friendly competition. Think you’re the best Super Smash Bros. player in the Quad Cities? Try out your skills in front of new friends at this fun event! Teens are also welcome to “band” together for the interactive game, Rock Band. Be the singer, the guitar player or the drummer and get a perfect score! If dancing is your thing, we’ll also have Dance Dance Revolution available. 

Following “Get Your Game On,” at 5:30 teens can celebrate the anxiously awaited release of New Moon, the second movie in the “Twilight Saga” based on the series of books by Stephenie Meyer, and debuting at movie theaters on November 20th.  Teens can make Twilight crafts, participate in Twilight games, and watch Twilight video clips. One lucky fan will win a life-sized cardboard cutout of Edward. He’s already on display at the Library, so stop by and say “hello.” For more information, visit the teen blog at: http://blogs.davenportlibrary.com/teens.

Then at 6:00 p.m. our Off-Beat Independent Film series will show the French film, Chocolat. A woman and her daughter open a chocolate shop in a small French village that shakes up the rigid morality of the community. This film is a beautiful and captivating comedy that features mouth-watering confections that inspire the straight-laced villagers to abandon themselves to temptation and happiness.  Attendees of this program will receive free popcorn, refreshments, and great discussion. Run time, 122 minutes.

SUMMER READING KICKOFF CELEBRATION!

SUMMER READING KICKOFF CELEBRATION!

catrow-spot-8“Be Creative @ Your Library” Summer Reading Program Kick-Off Event

Join the Davenport Public Library on Saturday, June 13 at the Fairmount Street Library for an afternoon of fun and entertainment.  The event runs from 12:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. with the workshops beginning at 1:00 p.m.  Workshops will be presented by Ellis Kell (Music), Rick Eugene (Magic), the DePriest Puppets (Puppeteering), and David and Stacey Houk (Illustrations) and  will begin every hour on the hour and will last about 30 minutes.  Children who participate will be able to take home a percussion instrument made out of recycled material, a handmade puppet, and their very own magic trick.

Oh yeah – listen up Twilight fans.  Groovie wizard rock band, Bella Rocks!, has just been booked to help us celebrate the kickoff of the 2009 Summer Reading Program.  Her vampy songs are inspired by the one-and-only Twilight Saga (by Stephenie Meyer), and are comparable to the sounds of Paramore and Avril Lavigne.  Mark your calendars now for the party – Saturday, June 13. It all starts at noon – Bella Rocks! will hit the stage at 4:00.  Want to know more?  Visit www.myspace.com/bellarocksmusic.  You can also download her album, “Diary of a Forks Girl,” from iTunes and Amazon.

The day’s events will include Summer Reading Program sign-up, fun and educational workshops, crafts, music, cookies and juice, and a chance to become part of history. Everyone who participates in the writing and illustration area will have a page that will be submitted to a book that will be professionally bound and placed in the Richardson-Sloan Special Collection Department.

Registration is not required for this FREE event!  For more information contact Steve Hart at (563) 328-6833 or visit online at www.davenportlibrary.com.
