    Contact: Alvin Ealy   781-585-0517 x6279   aealy@kingstonpubliclibrary.org
   

Our native pollinators are a critical piece of the world around us. There are thousands of pollinators that exist here and nowhere else and, beyond providing pollination services for our food, they help to sustain the diversity of life in our ecosystems. Prior to the introduction of the honey bee from Europe, all of our plants were pollinated by native pollinators. Due to a variety of factors, some of them, like the Rusty Patched Bumble Bee, are in peril. Learn about possible solutions for lending them a helping hand.

This program will take place at the Kingston Council on Aging on August 15 at 6:30 PM and will be led by Blake Dinius. Mr. Dinius is the Plymouth County Entomologist-Educator and has a B.S. in Biology from the University of Massachusetts, Boston and has several years of professional experience in insect research.

Annual Pet Show to benefit the Kingston Animal Shelter

Children and adults alike can bring their pet in to strut their stuff.  All proceeds from this event will go toward helping animals in need at the Kingston Animal Shelter.

This is a fun occassion to show off why your pet is such an important part of your family. What is their talent or trick?  What do you love most about them? Be prepared to answer a few simple questions the judges may have for you. Costumes are always fun, too!

We just have a few rules:

  • Pets must be leashed or in a cage/carrier.
  • Pets must be well-behaved and up-to-date on vaccinations.
  • Children under 9 showing a pet must be accompanied by an adult.
  • Permission slips must be signed by owners and/or parents of owners under 18.
  • Only dogs under 20 lbs. may be shown due to space limitations.

You may pick up a submission form starting July 2nd at the Library.

Join Kingston resident Suzanne Staples, of Bridge to Presence, LLC, for a donation-based Silver Age Yoga class. Silver Age Yoga, sometimes referred to as "Chair Yoga," provides the benefits of a traditional yoga class; light stretching, muscle strengthening poses, and guided meditation, from the comfort and safety of a chair. No yoga experience is necessary for this class. Practitioners are offered the option of a few standing postures toward the end of class, still using the chair for support. All levels of fitness and flexibility encouraged to join.

Proceeds will benefit the Kingston Public Library Foundation Technology project. Recommended donation is $5-10 per class. Class size is limited, and registration is requested at the Library or online at kingstonpubliclibrary.org.
