Titles on Tap Book Group – September

Library-at-mount-char-book-coverTuesday, September 27th, 2016 at 7:30 pm

Our next book will be “The Library at Mount Char” by Scott Hawkins, a dark contemporary fantasy novel that questions how we know what we know, and terrifies and astonishes us while doing it. Copies of the book and audiobook are available at the Reference Desk. The audio version is available for instant download or streaming on hoopla for Norwood residents. Pick up a copy, read it, and join us on 9/27 @ 7:30 pm!

Titles on Tap is a social book group for readers in their 20s and 30s and for the young at heart. We go in for stories that are shaken, not stirred, and we don’t mind taking our love of lit outside the library walls. Titles on Tap meets once a month in the left-hand bar of Napper Tandy’s to eat, drink, be merry, and discuss the latest reading selection. Visit our website and follow us @titlesontap to learn more.

Have you ever wanted to try a yoga class? Join local yoga instructor, Kathryn Ford Richter, RN, at the Morrill Memorial Library on Monday September 26 and/or Monday October 3 from 6:30-7:45 pm to try Kripalu yoga.

Kripalu yoga is a gentle yoga practice that uses poses, breath work, and relaxation techniques as a way to quiet the mind and integrate mind, body, and spirit.  This class focuses on the flow of energy, practicing compassionate self-acceptance,  and taking what is learned “on the mat” into daily life.  This class will include some gentle warm-ups, standing and seated poses, ending with essential oils during sivasana leaving you calm and refreshed. This class is an all-levels class but is perfectly suitable for beginners.

People can sign up for one or both sessions, and class size is limited to 15. Yoga at the Library is open to adults, and teens ages 13-17 with a parent. Please bring your own yoga mat, yoga blocks if you have them, and a blanket if desired.

Please register by email norprograms@minlib.net, by calling 781-769-0200 x110 or 222, or by visiting the Reference or Information Desk.
