THPL Lego Club
Wednesday, November 12th, 3:30 pm

Lego Club will be having three meetings this month on Wednesdays.

This week’s theme is “Outer Space.”

The library provides all the legos so that kids don’t need to worry about bringing any of their own. In fact, it might be best for kids to leave their own legos at home, so that they don’t get mixed in with everybody else’s.

The Lego club will involve special building challenges, where participants will be given a specific allotment of legos and time to build something really cool, then show off to fellow lego builders at the end.

So if you enjoy building cool lego stuff, and like to face a challenge, then this club is for you!

Evening Book Group
Monday, November 10th, 6:30 pm

“Return of the Soldier” by Rebecca West

The evening book group is continuing to explore books of the early 1900’s. Return of the Soldier by Rebecca West was one of the few novels about The Great War (World War I) to be written during the war; many came later.  The Soldier in question, Chris Baldry, has returned with amnesia and is living in the memory of the times before the war and before many other changes in England and in his own life.  Different forms of love, shifts in class structure, and yearning for simpler times all play a part in this novel.

Copies of the book are available at the library front desk; everyone is welcome to join in on the discussion.

Hockey Player Henry Boucha Shares His Journey
Saturday, November 8th, 1:00 pm

Henry Boucha is a retired Native American professional ice hockey centerman who played 6 seasons in the National Hockey League for the Detroit Red Wings, Minnesota North Stars, Kansas City Scouts and Colorado Rockies. Henry’s promising hockey career was tragically brief, cut short by an eye injury that forced him to hang up his skates at the age of 26. However, his impact on the game continues to this day, thanks to his work with an NHL/USA Hockey Diversity Task Force Program in his hometown of Warroad, Minn.

While raising his family in Warroad, Minnesota Henry tried but was unable to find someone interested in developing a series about Native American Olympians. In 2011, he formed Boucha Films to share the tragedies and successes of these sports figures to motivate our Native Youth, Families and our Nations of Indigenous People through these inspirational stories.

Join us as Henry shares his journey from high school hockey star to the Olympic and NHL Stage and the triumphs and tragedies along the way to become a successful advocate for Native American athletes.

This program, sponsored by Arrowhead Library System, was funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
