Long, long ago, two kids go on a daring adventure to find a dragon and save the kingdom from the Ice Sorceress! When things don’t go as planned, however, they must turn to themselves (and to science!) for the answer. A fun fantasy adventure with dry ice effects!

Thursday Faves

https://plainsborolibrary.kanopy.com/video/midsommar

Each Thursday we'll be making recommendations of some of the best books, music, movies, and more that you can still get from the library. Just because you're at home doesn't mean our media can't come to you.

Not for the squeamish, Midsommar [R] is a horror film that is oddly bright and serene. It follows a handful of college students invited to a Swedish summer festival. It may make you grateful that you're stuck indoors for a bit.

Tuesday Tools

https://blog.disneygeek.com/2019/09/06/videos-disney-parks-sunrise-series/

Each Tuesday we'll share something to try and help you at out home. Be it a digital tool to communicate, or just a practice to help keep a bit of sanity.

Today's tool is another bit of calm escapism. It's a series of sunrise videos around Disney parks. This may sound silly, but they are long, slow videos that are great to put on in the background or while doing yoga or meditating. The natural colors and calmness of the empty landscapes really can do wonders on a day when your nerves need settling.

Museum Monday

https://www.metmuseum.org/art/online-features/met-360-project

Each Monday we'll share a way to get out of the house and see somewhere new.

Unfortunately, as long as everything remains closed we can't offer museum passes. However, we can still set you up with museum dates for some of the finest museums, both globally and locally. So let me invite you to wander around the Metropolitan Museum of Art today. 360° video of some of the most varied collections around, from the temple of Dendur to the Cloisters to the Met Breuer's collection of modern art.

Thursday Faves

https://www.hoopladigital.com/comic/publisher/1246128914/series/backstagers/2101173170

Each Thursday we'll be making recommendations of some of the best books, music, movies, and more that you can still get from the library. Just because you're at home doesn't mean our media can't come to you.

For anyone who has ever felt that there must be magic backstage in theater, The Backstagers proves them right. A group of kids in crew for a high school's theater program deal with missing people, infinitely large rooms, magical props closets, mysterious creatures, and theater teachers who may know more than they're letting on.

Monday Museums

https://bit.ly/rijksmuse

Each Monday we'll share a way to get out of the house and see somewhere new.

This museum in the Netherlands houses masterworks from the Dutch Golden Age., like works by Vermeer and Rembrandt. But what I love about this online exhibition is the ability to "walk" around the building. There's something about the unguided wandering that lets me feel like I'm discovering these pieces on my own, strolling past the art until something catches my eye.
