March 2021 Newsletter - Part One!
We have so many great programs to share with you this month that we can't fit them all into one newsletter. So, in the spirit of Spring and new beginnings, we're going to start sending newsletters twice each month to give you more timely and complete information about what's happening at your local library.

We've highlighted some of the happenings for the first two weeks of March below. You can find the full program line-up on our online calendar and follow us on Facebook and Instagram for frequent program and service updates.

Try Qi gong!
Tuesdays, 9:30 am, at the Library

(Registration required)
Qi gong is a slow movement exercise with gentle stretching that can create better energy, better sleep, relaxation, and reduce stress. It’s been a long time since we were able to offer in-person Qi gong classes, but current public health orders allow us to have up to 20 people join us for in-person, socially-distanced classes. Recorded Qi gong sessions will continue to be posted on Facebook Tuesdays at 9:30 am and Wednesdays at 1 pm.
