The Ruidoso Public Library's blog is three years old this week. Thank you for reading and helping us improve with your comments and suggestions (still welcome, too!).
With the local schools on Spring Break, the library can be a great place to interact with your (grand)kids! Stop in for movies during the week or discover an interest you share. Many books have been remade as movies, perhaps start with comparing two formats of the same story. Here are a few for this year: Hugo Cabret, The Great Gatsby, The Woman in Black, John Carter, Hunger Games, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunger, The Bourne series, The Hobbit, Life of Pi, World War Z, or Great Expectations.
This Friday is a great evening to visit Alamogordo. Alamogordo's Friends of the Library (with NMSU-A, A Daily News, and Tularosa Basin Historical Society) host Enchantment: the 1st 100 years by Richard Melzer (we have the book). This will be held at the Flickinger Center for Performing Arts. Mr Melzer is a historian and author; see the images from this book and learned lots of history.
This Saturday, the Building Common Ground events continue with Jack Lehman, who will explore compassionate communication. If you missed the meditation event on March 3, you can watch the webinar recording anytime.
