Description: An Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago travels from his homeland in Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of treasure buried in the Pyramids. Along the way he meets a Gypsy woman, a man who calls himself king, and an Alchemist, all of whom point Santiago in the direction of his quest. No one knows what the treasure is, or if Santiago will be able to surmount the obstacles along the way But what starts out as a journey to find worldly goods turns into a meditation on the treasures found within. 

A 15-minute guided meditation (optional) concludes the program.

Copies are available to check out at the Library.

Game Night

Killer Bunnies and the Quest for the Magic CarrotAdults age 18+ are invited to attend Game Night! BYOG (Bring Your Own Games) or try one of ours! Time to browse the Library’s game collection and play your own games will be provided.

This session's featured game is Killer Bunnies and the Quest for the Magic Carrot, a fast-paced, action-filled card game, in which you must try to keep as many Bunnies alive as possible, while eliminating your opponents’ Bunnies. The problem: Your opponents are armed with weapons and will stop at nothing to keep you from winning the game, which can get dreadfully vengeful, horribly nasty, hilariously messy, and just plain fun! Can you keep from being attacked by the whimsical Whisk or the torching Flame Thrower? Defend your Bunnies with the Magic Spatula, or use a Feed The Bunny card to starve out an opponent! It’s off-the-wall strategic fun, where the goal is to survive and claim the Magic Carrot to win the game!
