Here's your chance to put your phone down and spend a lovely summer evening playing some excellent boardgames and meeting other boardgame enthusiasts. After the library closes for regular business on Friday, August 12th, it will reopen at 6 PM, having been magically transformed into an old school gaming parlor. We'll have some games on-hand (Chess, Checkers, Scattergories, Quelf, Scrabble and Bananagrams), but we're encouraging you to bring your favorite ones from home. If the weather cooperates, this will be an indoor/outdoor event (BYO picnic blanket). Register at the main desk by August 11th, or RSVP to rmeehan@minlib.net.

misc_none 10:00 AM  -  12:00 PM Death Cafe at the Woburn Senior Center Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Andrea Bunker   781-933-0148   abunker@minlib.net
   

Join us for cake and an open, lively, and participant-driven discussion about death. Unlike a support group or bereavement group, a Death Cafe creates a safe space to explore an often taboo subject. Come with an open mind, a healthy curiosity, and a willingness to share your thoughts, feelings, and questions with others. This Death Cafe is offered as part of a partnership between the Woburn Public Library and the Council on Aging. Please be on time if you are interested in participating, as latecomers will not be able to join in the conversation.

We have received many comments about the name and the intent of this type of program. Death Cafes were founded by Jon Underwood based on the work of Bernard Crettaz, and the first Death Cafe in the U.S. was offered by Lizzy Miles. For more information, please visit http://deathcafe.com/.
