book coverOn August 9, Starz cable TV station premiered the first installment of the Outlander Series.  The production is sure to create a lot of excitement about Diana Gabaldon's beloved and addictive Outlander Series :  a collection of eight books chronicling the adventures of World War II nurse Claire Randall who travels back in time to the 18th Century Scottish Highlands.  Start with book number one: Outlander, which begins the time travel adventure.  It is post WWII and while on a vacation trip to the Scottish Highlands with her husband, Claire touches a stone in a mystical stone circle and suddenly finds herself transported back in time.  Romance and adventure follow.  Here are the eight titles, in chronological order,  in the Outlander Series:

Maker Camp, Make: Google

 

Summer doldrums getting you down?  Feeling antsy?  Just been kicked out of your house for “accidently” setting the curtains on fire?  Are you just in the mood to build something cool?

The library’s Maker Camp is just the thing for you!

 

With help from Google and MAKE Magazine, we will be transforming the Educational Park Branch into a makerspace.  Every Monday through Thursday from 11:00 am - 12:00 pm, the library will virtually host some of the most interesting professional creators behind the scenes of game design, movies, and music. On Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:00 pm -1:00 pm, they’ll have the opportunity to create their own maker projects. 

 

 

Each week will have a different theme, with speakers and projects that will build upon it.

 

Week 1—Makers in Motion (July 7-11, 2014)

Week 2 —Art and Design (July 14-18, 2014)

Week 3—Fun & Games (July 21-25, 2014)

Week 4—Science & Technology (July 28-August 1, 2014)

Week 5—DIY Music (August 4-8, 2014)

Week 6—Make: Believe (August 11-15, 2014)

 

The event is free for all but children under 13 will need a parent or guardian with them to use Google+ or participate in the project.  Check out last year’s events to get an idea of what we’ll be doing this year.  And check out http://makercamp.com/ for more information.

 

Spaces are limited so sign up now.  Contact the Educational Park Library at 1-408-808-3073 to get your name on the list.
