Convos with Coco

Have you seen Convos With My 2 Year Old?
It's just enough silliness paired with bizzare to be deliciously funny.

Movable Art

I came across the art of Theo Jansen by accident and what a happy accident it was!
He has engineered giant wind-powered creatures.

Question: could you make something similar on a much smaller scale using plastic straws?

Word Cloud Workshop

They say words are an artform. It's espeically true when you make a poem into a word cloud.
Come to the Word Cloud program Friday, Apirl 11, 2014 from 2-3!
It takes concrete poetry to a different level.
If you can't make it to the program, take a look at Tagxedo
and make one on your own.
The word cloud poem above is Hug O' War by Shel Silverstein.
This one to the left is Early Bird by the same poet.

TechnARTology Art Show

Hey, we made up a word: TechnARTology. Hang on...OK, according to the Great Google I guess we're not the first to make up this particular word, but just 783 (many of them from our advertising) results indicates an impressive, if not complete, level of originality. Just saying. Anyway, the TechnARTology Art Show is happening right this very moment until March 31. The art is up in the YA Room (including the above piece by Morgan Chamberlin) and will soon be on our Facebook page for you to vote by "liking." Stop by the library's IRL or virtually to check it out!

Google Doodles Galore

Today is Valentine's Day and I heart the Google Doodle:

As I clicked through it I fondly remembered all the other sweet, funny and educational doodles the Great Google has bestowed upon us and I thought "I wonder if there's an archive?" Well, of course there is. You can view all the doodles ever from all over the world. You can even view those made for specific countries from Algeria to Venezuela! (Which are geographically close together if not alphabetically, hence they've had the exact same doodles so far this year. But, you know, still pretty cool.)

This might sound like an invitation to swim in our Olympic-sized chocoloate filled pool, but it's not. It's an invitation to create personalized chocolate treats on Monday, February 10 from 5-7pm. Some chocolate flavors inspire love, some fear. Create a chocolate-y Valentine for your sweetie or anti-Valentine for your frenemy, all while watching a tasty movie.
