NEW: 6-WEEK SESSION

April - May

Class dates: 4/1, 4/15, 5/6, 5/13, 5/20, and 5/27

*NO CLASS 4/8 or 4/22

**CLASS ON 4/29 WILL BE HELD IN MILES PARK, WEATHER PERMITTING--NO CHARGE**

$30 paid up front or $8/class

Tai Chi, although a martial art, is practiced primarily for its health benefits … And, for good reasons. Scientific studies show that it helps chronic conditions such as arthritis, heart disease, and diabetes, and that it improves balance, prevents falls, and reduces stress.

The practice of Tai Chi includes cultivating Qi, the vital life energy, which in turn, relaxes us and uplifts our spirits. Most importantly, Tai Chi is an enjoyable form of exercise that people of any age can learn and practice. And, we have a great group of people practicing already!

So, come join our class. Feel better … improve your posture, your cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength, and flexibility. 

This class is suitable for beginners.

Always check with your doctor before beginning any new exercise program. 

To register for the class please call or email Linda DeMedio, Certified Tai Chi for Health Instructor at 215-694-1863 or taichilcd@yahoo.com

“Flexibility is the Fountain of Youth." Really.

There are about 620 muscles and 200 bones in our body. Often several muscles are attached to the same bone, each pulling in a slightly different direction. (For example, foot weakness can cause back pain.)

Following the natural chains of the muscles in continuous circular and rotational movements feels easy and soothing. Using principles of Qigong and Tai Chi, these organic movements leave you with a sense of well-being and harmony.

Our class meets before the library opens. We enter via the side entrance and the doors usually open at 8:30am (but will lock shortly after 8:45am). Wear comfortable clothing and flexible shoes. No mat is necessary.

Always check with your doctor before participating in any new exercise program.

It’s not necessary to pre-register for this class.  If you have any questions please email Linda DeMedio, taichilcd@yahoo.com.

**Since the library opens at 10 a.m., the side entrance door will be open from 8:30 to 8:45 am. After that time there will be no admittance.**

Calling all wee builders! Wee Build is a special hands-on learning experience for young children. Our library received a Cruise Kindergarten program grant from The Office of Commonwealth Libraries to provide building materials for young children and their caregivers. Building materials offer children an almost infinite variety of opportunities to express themselves, from constructing simple designs to veritable engineering feats of bridge building. Playing is no idle pastime. In fact, research shows that play is shown to help children develop these skills: social-emotional (cooperation, self-confidence, initiative); physical development (eye-hand coordination, hand manipulation); mathematics (shape, classification, order, size, space); science (gravity, weight, balance, trial and error); language arts (exchange of ideas and telling  stories about what they are building); and art (patterns, symmetry). Don't miss this opportunity for your child to try out more than a dozen new sets of Wee Build materials!

Linda Kenyon performs as Julia Child in a play by Clay Teunis


Julia Child was an American cook, author and television personality who introduced French cuisine and cooking techniques to America. She was in the vanguard of "foodies," who by changing America's taste, helped create modern American culture. While her public face and voice became familiar to all of us, this play focuses on her private side - especially the relationship with her husband, Paul Child. Our play is a love story!

TAI CHI FOR HEALTH

Fridays at 10:00 am

in the Community Room

NEW: 6-WEEK SESSION

April - May

Class dates: 4/1, 4/15, 5/6, 5/13, 5/20, and 5/27

*NO CLASS 4/8 or 4/22

**CLASS ON 4/29 WILL BE HELD IN MILES PARK, WEATHER PERMITTING--NO CHARGE**

$30 paid up front or $8/class

Tai Chi, although a martial art, is practiced primarily for its health benefits … And, for good reasons. Scientific studies show that it helps chronic conditions such as arthritis, heart disease, and diabetes, and that it improves balance, prevents falls, and reduces stress.

The practice of Tai Chi includes cultivating Qi, the vital life energy, which in turn, relaxes us and uplifts our spirits. Most importantly, Tai Chi is an enjoyable form of exercise that people of any age can learn and practice. And, we have a great group of people practicing already!

So, come join our class. Feel better … improve your posture, your cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength, and flexibility. 

This class is suitable for beginners.

Always check with your doctor before beginning any new exercise program. 

To register for the class please call or email Linda DeMedio, Certified Tai Chi for Health Instructor at 215-694-1863 or taichilcd@yahoo.com

“Flexibility is the Fountain of Youth." Really.

There are about 620 muscles and 200 bones in our body. Often several muscles are attached to the same bone, each pulling in a slightly different direction. (For example, foot weakness can cause back pain.)

Following the natural chains of the muscles in continuous circular and rotational movements feels easy and soothing. Using principles of Qigong and Tai Chi, these organic movements leave you with a sense of well-being and harmony.

Our class meets before the library opens. We enter via the side entrance and the doors usually open at 8:30am (but will lock shortly after 8:45am). Wear comfortable clothing and flexible shoes. No mat is necessary.

TAI CHI FOR HEALTH

Fridays at 10:00 am

NEW: 6-WEEK SESSION

April - May

Class dates: 4/1, 4/15, 5/6, 5/13, 5/20, and 5/27

*NO CLASS 4/8 or 4/22

**CLASS ON 4/29 WILL BE HELD IN MILES PARK, WEATHER PERMITTING--NO CHARGE**

$30 paid up front or $8/class

Tai Chi, although a martial art, is practiced primarily for its health benefits … And, for good reasons. Scientific studies show that it helps chronic conditions such as arthritis, heart disease, and diabetes, and that it improves balance, prevents falls, and reduces stress.

The practice of Tai Chi includes cultivating Qi, the vital life energy, which in turn, relaxes us and uplifts our spirits. Most importantly, Tai Chi is an enjoyable form of exercise that people of any age can learn and practice. And, we have a great group of people practicing already!

So, come join our class. Feel better … improve your posture, your cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength, and flexibility. 

This class is suitable for beginners.

Always check with your doctor before beginning any new exercise program. 

To register for the class please call or email Linda DeMedio, Certified Tai Chi for Health Instructor at 215-694-1863 or taichilcd@yahoo.com

Why Rain Barrels?

Rain Barrel painted yellow with purple flowers

Presented by the Abington Environmental Advisory Council

Learn how you can make a difference.

Attend our workshop: Thursday, May 26, from 7-8 pm

You will learn...

Why you need a Rain Barrel

  • You can help the environment by collecting the rain-water from your roof and gutters with a rain barrel.
  • Rain barrels help lessen flooding, pollution and erosion.
  • With less rain-water running-off the land, less pollution will flow into our creeks and rivers.
  • Collecting and using your rain-water can also save you money on your water and sewer bills.

To register for this free program, email kmcinnis@mclinc.org, in the Library Office (215-885-5180, ext. 15) or online.

*NO CLASS 4/8 or 4/22

**CLASS ON 4/29 WILL BE HELD IN MILES PARK, WEATHER PERMITTING--NO CHARGE**

$30 paid up front or $8/class

Tai Chi, although a martial art, is practiced primarily for its health benefits … And, for good reasons. Scientific studies show that it helps chronic conditions such as arthritis, heart disease, and diabetes, and that it improves balance, prevents falls, and reduces stress.

The practice of Tai Chi includes cultivating Qi, the vital life energy, which in turn, relaxes us and uplifts our spirits. Most importantly, Tai Chi is an enjoyable form of exercise that people of any age can learn and practice. And, we have a great group of people practicing already!

So, come join our class. Feel better … improve your posture, your cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength, and flexibility. 

This class is suitable for beginners.

Always check with your doctor before beginning any new exercise program. 

To register for the class please call or email Linda DeMedio, Certified Tai Chi for Health Instructor at 215-694-1863 or taichilcd@yahoo.com

Through classes held in your local public library and taught by certified teachers, this program gets kids excited about science with hands-on experiments. Classes are small with 16 students each, so be sure to register early!

At Montgomery County-Norristown Public Library, kids will learn about Physical Science. Why does a compass always point north? How does a light switch work? Students will answer these questions and more when they experiment with magnets, witness the effects of static electricity and build their own electrical circuit.

Classes run for two days. Course dates are Wed., July 6 and Thurs., July 7, OR Mon., July 25 and Tues., July 26 (please choose one set only). Level I classes are at 10:00-12:00, and Level II classes are at 1:00-3:00.

Level I classes are for children entering grades 2-3

Level II classes are for children entering grades 4-6

PLEASE NOTE! Registration will be ONLINE ONLY instead of in person. Use your home computer or visit the library to use the public computers.

DUE TO THE HIGH VOLUME OF REGISTRATIONS, YOU MAY EXPERIENCE CONNECTION PROBLEMS. PLEASE KEEP TRYING!

Registration starts May 5 at noon. Registrations will be processed in the order they are received. To register your child, visit www.scienceinthesummer.com.
