Chair Tai Chi -“Tai Chi Chih©” 

Every Thursday - January 25th to March 1st, 2018


Interested participants will be introduced to “Tai Chi Chih©”, a moving meditation. It is easy to learn, and doesn’t require a particular level of physical fitness or coordination.  Consisting of 19 movements and one pose, TCC attracts  the widest audience because even those with physical limitations can participate, performing the movements while seated.  During the six one hour sessions, participants will have the opportunity to learn and practice, basic movements while seated, with an accredited Tai Chi Chih teacher, Sr. Christa Marie Thompson.
The body of high quality medical evidence providing sound arguments for practicing TCC is growing along with TV, newspaper, magazine, and “Web” accounts of the wide ranging health benefits  regular practitioners have gained.  
Studies linking TCC to positive changes in all of the following:
Arthritis                                                COPD
Depression & Anxiety                        Immune System
General Health                                   Increased Energy
Healthy Aging                                     Pain Relief

Read-Ercise w/ Toddlers

ENCORE PRESENTATION! Since this story time at 10:30am is so popular, Mr. Jason will be doing a second encore story time immediately after the first one. This way, the crowd won't be so big. So feel free to come to the 10:30am or the 11:30am story time for your toddlers!

In this Toddler story time, kids act out the books as they are being read, making them feel part of the story!  Stories, songs, fingerplays, rhymes, and toys help toddlers learn and love to read!

Tuesdays at 11:30am. Registration is NOT required.

(Children learn best through role modeling. Caregivers are asked to be great role models and be attentive and engaged in the story time. Side conversations can take place during free play. Thanks!)

Our first woman of science in the spotlight is Rachel Carson. Her work as a marine biologist, conservationist, and author of the groundbreaking book Silent Spring still resonates today.  Swarthmore College professor Maria Newport will help elementary students understand the chemical bonds in DDT that make that pesticide harmful to the envirionment using hands on chemistry kits, as well as other activities.

"PAWS for Reading is a program that allows children to read aloud to a therapy dog (or cat, or bunny!) in order to improve reading and communication skills. Children read individually to trained therapy pets (and their handlers) in schools, libraries, or other settings where they can feel comfortable and confident — and have fun! After all, a dog will not correct them or make them feel awkward if they stumble."

MFL is a participating library in PAWS for Reading program! We have enough spaces per visit for 12 kids/readers. We recommend ages 5+ (or any one who can read aloud).

Winter 2018 Dates for PAWS for Reading:
