Yoga at the Library
Saturday, Sep. 3, 9:15 - 10:00 AM

Start your weekend off on the right foot with an energizing yoga session on the library lawn! Instructor Colleen Crawford will lead us through 45 minute  yoga sessions appropriate for anyone, even if you have little or no experience with yoga! We’ll begin with a thorough warmup and then build the intensity gradually, exploring postures several times while working up to the complete flow. Colleen will present options for various poses, allowing participants to discover which versions work best for them. 

If the weather doesn’t cooperate, we’ll meet in the Edgar Meeting Room. 

Participants should bring their own yoga mats. The library has a limited number of mats available for those who do not have one of their own. 

Registration opens August 10 and  you need to register for each session you wish to attend.

Critical Conversatio
Thursday, Sep. 8, 7-8 PM (Every Other Thursday, 9/8, 9/22, 10/6, 10/20, 11/3)

Unlike book clubs that discuss a different title at each meeting, the Critical Conversations Book Club studies one book in depth over multiple sessions.

This fall they will discuss the book The Making of Asian America by Erika Lee. 

The book club meets every other Thursday on Zoom. During each meeting, the group will have a facilitated discussion on a different section of the book. 

Registration is required for each session. We will send the Zoom link to those who have registered.

Calling all tweens and teens (grades 6-12) who love anything and everything about the stage! Join us each month as we develop acting skills and learn more about the theatre! Each session will focus on a different aspect of acting, and will include exercises, games, and other activities! No previous theatre or acting experience is necessary! All are welcome!
