misc_none 11:00 AM Mindfulness Storytime Workshop Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Lucas Franklin     lfranklin@cheshirelibrary.org
   

Have you ever rushed through the day going from activity to activity on auto-pilot?  Eating without tasting and looking without seeing?  Children are leading an increasingly busy life with school, sports events, music lessons and more. So they also experience that rushed pace.  Mindfulness techniques train you to pay attention to those things in the present moment in a nonjudgmental and accepting manner. This gives children the opportunity to stop and choose a response thoughtfully rather than reacting impulsively.

This program will meet on the third floor of the library.

Registration required starting June 22.

Ages 4-6

Marlon Brando gives one of the screen's most electrifying performances as Best Actor in this 1954 Academy Award winner for Best Film.

Terry is guilt-stricken, however, when he lures a rebellious worker to his death. But it takes the love of Edie Doyle (Eva Marie Saint), the dead man's sister, to show Terry how low he has fallen. When his crooked brother Charley the Gent (Rod Steiger) is brutally murdered for refusing to kill him, Terry battles to crush Friendly's underworld empire. No registration necessary.

    Contact:      bbasel@cheshirelibrary.org
   

Purposeful Destiny will be the theme of the program presented at Cheshire Public Library, 104 Main Street, on Tuesday, July 28, 6:30 p.m.  Social worker and human service consultant Joan Hoey authored her book, Purposeful Destiny, to help people struggling to find their highest destiny in life.  The book urges readers to reach beyond their own limitations to find a power higher than themselves. It features eight true stories of people who overcame obstacles and unusual circumstances to find balance and positivity, something Hoey hopes her readers will also experience. 

“This book will appeal to people who feel stuck, have lost hope and believe no options exist,” Hoey says. “We have all been blocked at some time in our lives, longing for change and fulfillment.  Purposeful Destiny is an invitation to change your life – to free yourself from obstacles, break negative patterns and discover love and fulfillment.”

Joan Hoey has earned master’s degrees in social work and speech communication.  She has more than 20 years of clinical experience as a private practitioner, trainer and human service consultant.  She has lectured at universities in the U.S. and Europe.

Seating for this event is limited.  Please register online or call 203-272-2245, ext. 4.  This program is funded by the Friends of the Cheshire Public Library.

Have you ever rushed through the day going from activity to activity on auto-pilot?  Eating without tasting and looking without seeing?  Children are leading an increasingly busy life with school, sports events, music lessons and more. So they also experience that rushed pace.  Mindfulness techniques train you to pay attention to those things in the present moment in a nonjudgmental and accepting manner. This gives children the opportunity to stop and choose a response thoughtfully rather than reacting impulsively.

This program will meet on the third floor of the library.

Registration required starting June 22.

Buzz Gordo (aka Gary Mezzi) & Tom Smith play music for kids and their folks in the style of artists like Dan Zanes. Buzz strums guitar and ukulele, while Tom keeps a beat that makes it easy for kids to dance around.

They incorporate elements of folk, rockabilly, calypso and other diverse styles, with songs about everything from annoying monkeys, to the pleasures of chewing gum, to an epic rap about Dr. Seuss! Throw in some storytelling (Buzz has been a children’s librarian for years) and lots of movement and participation, and kids from 3-10, and maybe even their older siblings, will have a rockin’ time.

Ages 3+

Who are our Muslim neighbors? What do they believe? What has been their experience as a result of extremist actions in various parts of the world?

CCIU - CT Council for Interreligous Understanding, the Muslim Coalition of Connecticut, and Hartford Seminary are co-sponsoring a series of conversations throughout Connecticut to inform the public about the American-Muslim experience and to discuss some of the concerns about that community raised by the broader American public since 9/11. Four Muslim neighbors will informally share some of their experiences and respond to questions such as:

  • Why don’t we hear moderate Muslims speaking out against extremism
  • Why do some girls and women wear Muslim dress and others do not
  • What does the Qur’an really say about Christians, Jews and members of other faiths? 

American Muslims do not have all the answers, but guests will respond out of their own experiences, raising issues that concern all Americans.

Do you love building with LEGO blocks or Mega Bloks? Then Builders Brigade is the program for you!

Kids have the opportunity to use their best creativity to design buildings, creatures, and more using LEGO and Mega Bloks. They can work alone, or in a team with peers. A different theme is picked for each session and kids can build on that theme or build a creation of their own. At the end of each session, we will put photos of all projects on display on our Builders Brigade Blog!

No registration required. 

Children ages 7 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
