Sherlock Holmes Discovers New Bookmobile Holmes and Watson flee from Professor Moriarty at the Kansas Museum of History.

New Bookmobile in Town This Summer

I

t’s no mystery that The Library Foundation’s work with the Capitol Federal® Foundation has created a literacy partnership that will be enjoyed all over Shawnee County. The Capitol Federal gift enabled the library to purchase a new bookmobile to replace a 21-year-old vehicle. In early June, it will arrive sporting a new distinctive design and a never-been-used collection.

The new bookmobile depicts scenes from a classic series, the Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Library CEO Gina Millsap points out that there is a twist in the mystery because the “story” is set in Topeka, making it truly unique to our community. Images of Holmes, Dr. Watson and their arch nemesis Professor Moriarty stand almost 8-feet tall. The wrap was designed by the library and Capitol Federal staff, and captured by award–winning Alistair Tutton, Alistair Photography, Kansas City, Kan.

“We realize how important it is to provide an extension of the library to the citizens of Topeka, especially those who are not able to visit the library on a regular basis,” John B. Dicus, Capitol Federal® Chairman said. “The bookmobile also is a great opportunity for introducing the adventure of reading to children, for them to discover the fun of reading for a lifetime.” The “story” was performed by actors from the Topeka Civic Theatre & Academy. “Through our Academy we have brought many books to life on our stage as part of our cooperative Read the Book, See the Play program,” said Vicki Brokke, President & CEO, TCTA. “When asked to assist with the bookmobile wrap project, we were happy to recruit and costume actors. Our amazing library is a true asset in our community.”

Locked in mortal combat with Moriarty, Watson comes to rescue Holmes from falling off the Docking Building rooftop.

Moriarty contemplates his next move against Holmes at the Charles Curtis House Museum.

Gang reporter Michael Lyons is shot on the street and becomes the news. He survives the attack but is not unscathed. While he is recovering, a tape surfaces in which Lyons discusses the advantages of being shot. Lyons is fired from his job, and with suspicion hanging over him, uses his skills as a reporter to investigate and prove his innocence.

DANCING THROUGH IT

First it was hints, then concerned talks, finally outright threats of dismissal: lose weight or lose your job. And that’s how Jenifer Ringer ended up an overweight, out-of-work, ex-ballerina. This is the true story of being a promising young ballerina with the New York City Ballet until her relationship with food derailed her career. Jenifer was in a terrible cycle she couldn’t break, binging, fasting, and obsessively exercising. Dancing Through It gives the reader an insider’s view of the hectic and demanding life of a ballerina.

3 major improvements to checking out 1. Speed. Check-out is much more streamlined 2. Convenience. Check-out kiosks located where you are in the building 3. Privacy. A more discreet way of checking out Instead of scanning each book, movie or other item individually, the new checkout kiosks enable you to place your selections in the cubby, and voilà, all the items are checked out at once. Your stack may need to be fanned out to make sure all items get scanned; otherwise, you’ll set of the security gates. This technology is powered by Radio Frequency Identification (RFID).

The library’s monarch butterfly habitat emerges from its cocoon this summer. Look for things greening up near the library’s flagpole on the southwest side. In August these beautiful insects migrate through Kansas, though we’ve seen less and less of them. The population is on the decline, and you will soon have a front row seat to help keep an eye on this protected species. 6

Ramp It Up Skateboard Culture in Native America ANNUAL ART EXHIBIT FOR CHILDREN

T

opeka’s skateboard scene is cool, fast and sometimes bruising. Our city’s skaters enjoy three skate parks, and the Alice C. Sabatini Gallery will soon look like a fourth, complete with half-pipe. It’s all in honor of the exhibit Ramp It Up: Skateboard Culture in Native America, which takes us outside the local skate scene, beyond our rituals and deep into Native American culture. Skateboarding is one of the most popular sports on Indian reservations and has inspired and influenced American Indian communities since the ‘60s. Be amazed by the art on 20 skate decks, including examples from Native companies and contemporary artists such as Bunky EchoHawk, who is also a skater and activist. View images and video of skateboard history and of Native skaters like the 4-Wheel Warpony skate crew. Local skater and DJ Fraktul will get the party started with music during the opening reception on June 28. Teens and kids are asked to bring in parents and grandparents to show off this art form – chances are they skateboarded, too. (No way?! Yes, way, granny skated.) “This is the gallery’s annual exhibit for children, but we recognize the sport is intergenerational. Ramp It Up will bring back memories and also connect families and

friends in unexpected ways,” said Heather Kearns, exhibit coordinator. “This seemingly simple activity has interesting broader applications in areas such as fashion, language, education and the formation of niche groups inside America’s diverse Native cultures.” Ramp It Up examines the role of indigenous peoples in skateboarding culture, its roots in Hawaiian surfing and the visionary achievements of contemporary Native skaters. The exhibition features the work of visual artists and athletes from the following tribes: Yakama, Pawnee, Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma, White Mountain Apache, Navajo and the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians among others. The exhibit will also explore the science of skateboarding – what goes up must come down. Catch this Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibit before August 24, when it continues on its 12-city national tour. Ramp It Up: Skateboard Culture in Native America is organized by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian and circulated by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service.
