Join us in Meeting Room A on April 26th for a lunch time event presented by Bartlesville Friends of the Library, as Jerrie Nicholson reviews the book: A Gentleman in Moscow, by Amor Towles.  Towles also penned Rules of Civility which was a New York Times best seller.  This is the second review of the 2018 spring Books Sandwiched-In series, sponsored by Bartlesville Friends of the Library.

This event is free and open to the public.  Should you have additional questions, please call (918) 338-4187 or email us at bpl@bartlesville.lib.ok.us.

Bartlesville Public Library will host award-winning author, Phil Dixon, to talk about his book “Kansas City Monarchs in our Hometown,” which chronicles the history of the Kansas City Monarchs baseball team — the longest running franchise in the history of baseball’s Negro Leagues.

The free program is set for 1:30 p.m., Sunday, in the Library’s Meeting Room A. The library is located at 601 S. Johnstone Ave. in downtown Bartlesville.

Bartlesville is one of many stops Dixon will make on his tour to discuss the 1924 World Champion Monarchs and baseball history. He began a 90-city tour to honor the Monarchs— winners of a national title 90 years ago — but never imagined where it would take him, he says.

Join us for free weekly Tabata workout classes! What is Tabata? Tabata is a form of high intensity interval training that involves aerobics and strength training. Typical Tabata workouts involve doing various exercises very quickly for 20 seconds and then resting 10 seconds (usually repeating 8 times). Some typical exercises include push ups, burpees, high knees, squats, movements with kettle bells and much more.

It’s fast paced and fun, and has great results!

Registration is underway at the Bartlesville Public Library’s Youth Services Department for the annual LEGO Creation Contest!
 
The contest is free, and participants will be divided into three age groups: Kindergarten through fourth grade, fifth grade through eighth grade, and ninth grade through adult.
 
First, second and third place winners will be awarded in each category with one overall grand prize being awarded. Winners will receive LEGO products and ribbons.
 
Contestants will build their LEGO creations at home using their own LEGOs, abiding by the rules and criteria noted on the registration form. They will then drop off their entries at the upstairs meeting room of the library between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 28.
 
The room will be closed at 11 a.m. to allow judging to take place. Judging the contest will be John Dunn of Ambler Architects, Eric Randall of Tri-County Tech and George Halkiades, retired engineer and facilitator of local FIRST Robotics Team 2165.
 
“We are extremely grateful to these professionals who are willing to lend their knowledge and expertise to the evaluation of the contest entries,” said Pryce. “Our judges each year bring a discerning eye and an enthusiastic attitude to the job.”
 
Public viewing will begin that same day at 1 p.m., with awards being presented soon after. Winning entries will be shown in the library’s lobby display case throughout the first week of May.
 
“Novices and experts are both welcome to participate,” said Pryce. “We encourage everyone to try and to be confident, no matter their skill level.”
To register, come by the Youth Services Desk at the Bartlesville Public Library, 600 S. Johnstone Ave. in downtown Bartlesville, or call 918-338-4170 for more information.

In our last cooking class, Mike Minnich taught us how to cook pork chops with reduction sauce. The results of his fine cooking was the sample of delicious pork chops with a cranberry reduction and an orange reduction sauce.

Chef Mike gave us some very good cooking instructions, including the surprising use of pans that are not coated with a non-stick coating. Not only did Chef Mike give us these instructions, he also showed us a technique that would make the cleaning of our skillet much easier.

On April 4th, at noon at the Bartlesville Public Library, Chef Mike will return to teach us some new ways to cook cauliflower. Chef Mike believes that cauliflower is one of the most underrated vegetables there are.

Come join us at noon on Wednesday, April 4th at the Bartlesville Public Library and discover new ways to appreciate cauliflower!
