The first week we will be following her DVD-1 Mile Get Up & Get Started (18 minutes) and week two will include the above as well as a warm up and her second DVD-2 Mile Brisk Walk (30 minutes). You set your own pace and decide how long you want to walk. Plus we will be inside an air-conditioned room!

Stop by the library during the month of June and view stunning images of the diverse and breathtaking wildlife and scenery of Africa. The photos are by Jill Mudge, a digital fine arts photographer from Nashua.

Love gardening? The Friends of the Library Garden Committee meets to help maintain and plan the library grounds every Thursday, from 9:00-11:00 a.m. in the garden of the library. All levels of experience are welcome. Share your knowledge; learn from others.

If you’ve read “Harry Potter” or “Percy Jackson and the Olympians”, then the “Kane Chronicles” by Rick Riordan, is probably the next book series you should read. It’s got magic, ancient Egyptian gods, and adventure! Join Miss Sue on alternate Tuesdays during the Summer Reading Program to dig into the Kane Chronicles! Signup is required! Please do so by June 11! (because we need to order books). Pick up the first book on Tues., June 25.
