Experience scrapbookers are encouraged to bring samples of their own work to share.

Get Fit @ Your Library!
For years the library has offered an adult yoga program featuring “Yoga for the Rest of Us” every Monday & Friday morning at 9:10a. Yoga is a great way to lengthen and strengthen muscles; it also helps improve balance and stability.
Over a year ago we added an adult Zumba class that meets Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 6:00p. This dance workout features Latin beats and dance moves that are lots of fun and a great way to burn calories. As the creators say, “Ditch the workout and join the party!” You don’t need to be a dancer or master a string of dance moves. Just keep moving!!! You’re burning more calories than anyone whose sitting on the couch.
Both of these classes are FREE and open to be public. No preregistration is required.
Watch our website for information on our next LME Biggest Loser coming in August!
That’s not all! We will be adding more programming throughout the spring so be sure to visit our website for updates and a link to a printable monthly calendar of events.
