misc_none 2:00 PM  -  3:00 PM Nature Calls: Walking Your Local Parks Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

Our monthly series of events, First Thursdays, continues with this presentation about the many beautiful local parks and trails that provide opportunities to improve your physical and mental health and enjoy the natural surroundings. We know that we should have some regular physical exercise to maintain our health and wellness. Some of you may do regular walks from your house and around your neighborhood. But are you aware of the many city and regional parks and trails nearby that can provide you with a new experience by walking in a beautiful place to explore nature?

There are many testimonials of park and trail users about how walking in nature improved their physical health and/or mental health. Walking in a place removed from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives can help in reducing stress and also help in the mental healing process of recovery from loss of a loved one or other significant event.

Our guide is Richard Guarienti, a long time volunteer for the City of Dublin and the East Bay Regional Park District. Richard is the founder of the Tri-Valley Trail Trekkers hiking group and the Dublin Path Wanderers walking group.   Handout materials and some maps of the parks and trails discussed will be provided.

Do you enjoy reading and discussing books with others? Do you enjoy lively conversation about fiction and non-fiction books?  Then welcome to Dublin Library's 2nd Thursday of the Month book discussion group.    Come to the Information Desk to pick up a copy of the books to be discussed.  The book to be discussed for May will be the New York Times bestseller, "City of Women: A Novel," by David R. Gillham.  Sigrid Schröder is the model German soldier’s wife: She dutifully works every day, copes with rationing, and cares for her  mother-in-law, while ignoring the horrors committed by the regime. But behind this façade, Sigrid is an entirely woman who dreams of her former Jewish lover, now lost in the chaos of war.
