Dungeons and Dragons is a fantasy game powered by imagination that has been around for 41 years, despite controversy and labeling. The possibilities are endless and each game changes depending on the ‘dungeon master,' who is the storyteller for the game.  Teens who like to play, or want to try it out for the first time, can head to the Southern Oaks Library, 6900 S. Walker, on Saturday, January 31, 11A.M. –  4P.M.

Popcorn-the Most Lucrative Snack

Popcorn-the Most Lucrative Snack

I love popcorn. The smell of popping kernels adds to the excitement and experience of movie theaters. Yes, I will pay the price to enjoy the bucket of the salty snack during a film, thought not without a smidge of guilt.  At home, I pop it on the stove the ‘old school’ way. But I have always wondered how a noisy snack like popcorn became the staple snack in a venue where we are supposed to be quiet.

Dragon Appreciation Day

Dragon Appreciation Day

Have you hugged your dragon today? Despite their fame in many cultures, from the fiery Chinese dragons to the great beasts of England, these misunderstood creatures have not received the recognition they deserve. That changed in 2004 when Dragon Appreciation Day was declared. Now every January 16, we can show our gratitude to our scaly friends.

If you have a dragon of your very own (you lucky soul!), the library has resources that can help you.
