Water Safety for Parents
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

 

Summer is about to begin, and so is our time in and near water--whether pools, lakes or oceans.  

Water Safety for Parents focuses on how to protect yourself and your family from potential water dangers.

Our speaker, Maria Tumang, will offer facts and information on what potenial dangers and offer talking points with kids about how to what to do to prevent water accidents.  This will give parents a starting point on having a water safety discussion with their children, as well as giving them real “how-to’s” and “what-to-do’s”  to keep their children safe around water. Parents play a big role in their kids’ safety around water and it’s important for each family to know how to discuss and address common water safety rules that everyone must follow,

 Maria has been a swim instructor for over 15 years, and have taught babies from 6 months old to school-age kids to adults.  She teaches swimming and water aerobics at the Regional YMCA of Western CT in Brookfield, and was the Aquatics Director at the Regional YMCA in Brookfield.

Morning Book Chat
10:15 AM - 11:30 AM

Paperback The Giver of Stars Book

From the author of Me Before You, this novel, set in Depression-era America, is a breathtaking story of five extraordinary women and their remarkable journey through the mountains of Kentucky and beyond.

In The Giver of Stars by Jojo Moyes, five heroic women are committed to their job of bringing books to people who have never had any, arming them with facts that will change their lives.  Based on a true story rooted in America's past, this novel is unparalleled in its scope and epic in its storytelling.  Funny, heartbreaking, enthralling, it is destined to become a modern classic-a richly rewarding novel of women's friendship, of true love, and of what happens when we reach beyond our grasp for the great beyond.  (From the publisher).

We are also offering a book guide for all registrants which highlights the author's background, offers interviews and book insights, as well as topics and questions to stimulate the conversation. 

We have preordered copies of the book for you.  Just call the Library at 203-794-8756 to reserve your copy and schedule a curbside pick-up. 

Please note that this discussion will be via Zoom; registration with a valid email is required to receive the Zoom link.
