A Host of Activities

We’ve got fun activities for all ages. Spend an evening on the beach enjoying the waves. Be sure to wear your Hawaiian shirt! We’ll have all the tropical sounds, food and fun that you could wish for, including drinks with umbrellas. 

Besides having a great time while ignoring the outside snow, participating will give you a chance at the night’s drawing for ultimate relaxation, a massage from Urban Massage. (Must be present and an adult to win, though there will be a drawing prize for the youngsters as well.)

Jane is now a common grown-up, with a daughter called Margaret; and every spring cleaning time, except when he forgets, Peter comes for Margaret and takes her to the Neverland, where she tells him stories about himself, to which he listens eagerly. When Margaret grows up she will have a daughter, who is to be Peter’s mother in turn; and thus it will go on, so long as children are gay and innocent and heartless.

As Part of the Library Book Club

Wednesday, February 26, at 1:30 pm in the Entry Foyer
and
Thursday, February 27, at 6:00 pm in the Entry Foyer

Children, Tweens, Teens and Adults are welcome to join this On the Same Page discussion about Peter Pan, the mischievous boy who refuses to grow up.

“Listen, then,” said Wendy, settling down to her story, with Michael at her feet and seven boys in the bed. “There was once a gentleman—”

A Story for the Ages

Our story starts as Peter Pan lands in the Darling’s proper middle-class home to look for his shadow. He befriends Wendy, John and Michael and teaches them to fly over the rooftops of London (with a little help from fairy dust). He and Tinker Bell whisk them off to Never-land, the island where lost boys play, mermaids splash and fairies make mischief. But a villainous-looking gang of pirates lurk in the docks, led by the terrifying Captain James Hook. Magic and excitement are in the air, but if Captain Hook has his way, before long, someone will be walking the plank and swimming with the crocodiles…

“It’s awfully sad,” the first twin said cheerfully.
“I don’t see how it can have a happy ending,” said the second twin. “Do you, Nibs?”
“I’m frightfully anxious.”
“If you knew how great is a mother’s love,” Wendy told them triumphantly, “you would have no fear.”

On the Same Page 2020 – An Introduction to Fencing

With Dusty Johnson!

Friday, February 21, starting at 7:00 pm in the Community Room

Come learn the basics of swordplay in this hands-on On the Same Page evening for the active and adventurous.

“Proud and insolent youth, prepare to meet thy doom.”
“Dark and sinister man, have at thee!”

Fencing Maestro Dusty Johnson

Mr. Johnson started fencing by joining the SCA then taking a class offered by his university.  He founded the Ricks College Fencing Club in 1987 and later started his own club called Fox Fencing in Southeast Idaho which he ran for thirty years. During this time he took his students to Nationals and the Junior Olympics. He has since retired from teaching fencing.

Safety Concerns

This is a night for adults and teens only (aged 12 and up). Also, you’ll need to sign up for this event at the circulation desk because space is limited.

Peter was a superb swordsman, and parried with dazzling rapidity; ever and anon he followed up a feint with a lunge that got past his foe’s defence, but his shorter reach stood him in ill stead, and he could not drive the steel home. … Hook sought to close and give the quietus with his iron hook, which all this time had been pawing the air; but Peter doubled under it and, lunging fiercely, pierced him in the ribs. At the sight of his own blood, whose peculiar colour, you remember, was offensive to him, the sword fell from Hook’s hand, and he was at Peter’s mercy.

The Illustrations of J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan

Wednesday, February 12, starting at 7:00 PM IN THE COMMUNITY ROOM

For this On the Same Page event, we’re pleased to have guest speaker and BYU-Idaho English Professor, Jacqueline Harris, who will present a fascinating discussion.

“Would you like an adventure now,” Peter said casually to John, “or would you like to have your tea first?”

Capturing Barrie’s Neverland

2nd and 4th Thursday’s at 4:00-4:30 pm in the Community Room

Professor Harris will share how famous artists and illustrators have been captivated by Barrie’s Neverland and the boy who wouldn’t grow up. The artwork discussion will feature the pen-and-ink illustrations of F.D. Bedford, the full-page color renditions by Mabel Lucie Attwell, and the fairy watercolors prints by Arthur Rackham.

(And in the spirit of let’s not go home empty handed, there may be a small token given at the end of the evening to offset library forgetfulness, if you know what I mean. .)

F. D. Bedford

Mabel Lucie Attwell

Arthur Rackham

[Peter Pan] became a bestseller, and rightly so, as it was to be thumbed to loving death in nurseries, generation after generation. In her role as an illustrator for children it is the most successful of her books, as it touched most enjoyably on the areas of that marvelous story in a way that children can understand and remember forever.
