Virtual with Kevin Cook: The Quest
Tuesday, February, 8
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Zoom - Webinar

Join us virtually for the second installment of Kevin Cook's year-long series, "A Naturalist's Desiderata: Part 2," where he continues with a discussion on how the quest of a naturalist represents manifestation of time and energy to explore places and seasons, to discover diversity and connectedness.

This month's discussion, The Quest, will take place virtually, over Zoom. 
Not sure how Zoom works or how to connect? View this short video.
See you at the program! 

Dictionaries define "desideratum" as something needed, wanted, or desired.  Truth be told, almost no one uses the word "desideratum!" Yet Max Ehrmann's gently meaningful prose-poem "Desiderata" maintains a subculture following. And rightfully so. What if "desideratum" is redefined to make it more substantial than just wanting something? The year-long theme for 2017 did that, redefining "desideratum" as a powerful ideal by which a person guides passage through life.  That year presented 12 desiderata for the nature enthusiast. Now, five years later, 12 more naturalist's desiderata complete the guide by which a person can engage the wonder of life on Earth.


Yoganna Relax
Tuesday, February, 8
5:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Zoom - Children

Need to take a breather? Come join mindful relaxation and yoga for teens! Come learn ancient and modern techniques such as yoga, Qigong, Tai Chi, and mindful breathing, that can help you manage life stressors. Become more attuned to your body, build confidence in your movements, and take a moment to breath and meditate with us. Please wear loose clothing for moving in and choose a quiet location.   


This program will take place on Zoom. The Zoom link will be emailed to you from poudrelibraries@evancedsignup.com. If you do not see the email in your inbox, check your spam folder.

Axie Oh, The Girl Who Fell Beneath the Sea:  an enthralling feminist retelling of the classic Korean folktale, "The Tale of Shim Cheong," perfect for fans of Wintersong, Uprooted, and Miyazaki's Spirited Away.
