ADULT SERVICES

  • Great Presenters: Rachel Rice – Aligning Your Energy to Your Highest Purpose. Our Great Presenters series for 2022 kicks off with a fascinating program. Sometimes, even when we are clear on what we want to do and who we want to be, our energies get in our way–as procrastination, hesitation, worry, anxiety, fear, or self-discouragement. This program can help clarify your idea of your highest vibration self and show you how to align your energy with your purpose. You may even feel happier, lighter, and more joyful.  Rachel Rice is a corporate executive turned peak performance consultant. Register through our Events menu. Tuesday, January 11 at 7:30 p.m.
  • Library Gift Guides. We’ve got them for adults, kids, and teens, with lots of great book ideas for every reader on your list. Pick up print copies at the library or find them online at our Library Spotlight blog.
  • ESOL Discussion Groups. Two new groups, for intermediate or advanced ESOL speakers, meeting twice a month starting January 7 and 11, through March. Tuesdays 1-2 p.m. and Fridays 10-11 a.m. Discussions will be about a short story or article. This is a great way to improve your English and maybe make new friends.
