Join us for Wonderful Ones Storytime in the Children's Room every Thursday at 11 am! We will sing, move, and read together as we work on developing our early literacy skills while also building community connections. This program is specifically intended for the developmental stages of one year olds but concepts can be transferred to similar ages.
For ages 7 only: Join Librarian Robert in the Children's Room and learn to knit! Learn the basic skills to get started on a simple project and practice your stitching.
Ramses II, known as Ramses the Great, was the most celebrated and powerful pharaoh of the New Kingdom, which was Egypt’s golden age. Believed to be a living god, Ramses ruled for 67 years, erecting enormous temples, obelisks, and statues while also expanding Egypt’s empire. Ramses the Great and the Gold of the Pharaohs features one of the greatest collections of Egyptian artifacts ever to travel to the United States. This talk will explore Ramses’s life and discuss the marvelous treasures in this exhibition, from the pharaoh’s colossal royal sculpture to mummies and exquisite Egyptian jewelry.
This talk is presented by the de Young Museum, one of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. Our docent for this evening is Richard Cutler. Richard’s interest in Art & Antiquities started in at an early age with regular trips with his mother to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. As an undergraduate, he focused on Art History, culminating with a semester on Renaissance Studies in Florence, Italy. Richard has been an avid museum goer ever since and enjoys sharing with museum visitors the cultural and historical context of artworks to enhance their enjoyment of the museums’ collections.
