Upcoming Adult Programs

 



October 2018

Tai Chi for Health - Wednesday mornings at 10:30 am starting September 26th. Join us as local instructor Rachel Hickman teaches an 8-week course in Tai Chi. Tai Chi is an exercise that improves balance, sharpens the mind and circulates oxygen throughout the body while gently massaging all the joints, ligaments and muscles of the entire body. Wear loose, comfortable clothing and shoes that will not slip during movement. Try not to miss any classes because each class builds upon the previous ones. Newcomers will not be allowed after the second class takes place. Program takes place in the meeting room. Participants must complete the Enrollment Form at the front desk before the first class.

          October 23. 10 am –Word 2013 Pt. 2


Library Book Group – October 18. 7 pm. Join us for our discussion of Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. In Shaker Heights, a placid, progressive suburb of Cleveland, everything is planned – from the layout of the winding roads, to the colors of the houses, to the successful lives its residents will go on to lead. And no one embodies this spirit more than Elena Richardson, whose guiding principle is playing by the rules. Enter Mia Warren – an enigmatic artist and single mother – who arrives in this idyllic bubble with her teenaged daughter Pearl, and rents a house from the Richardsons. Soon Mia and Pearl become more than tenants: all four Richardson children are drawn to the mother-daughter pair. But Mia carries with her a mysterious past and a disregard for the status quo that threatens to upend this carefully ordered community. Program takes place in the meeting room.


Cake & Culture – Holiday Mailbox Decoration by Suzy – Oct 21. 2 pm. Floral expert Suzy Reynolds-Smith helps you get an early start on your decorating checklist for the Holidays. She will demonstrate the techniques and tools used to create fantastic mailbox covers. One arrangement made for the demonstration will be given away by drawing at the end of the program. Refreshments provided by the Friends of the Library. Program takes place in the meeting room.

Stevens, at the end of three decades of service at Darlington Hall, spending a day on a country drive, embarks as well on a journey through the past in an effort to reassure himself that he has served humanity by serving the "great gentleman," Lord Darlington. But lurking in his memory are doubts about the true nature of Lord Darlington's "greatness," and much graver doubts about the nature of his own life. Program takes place in the meeting room.
