The Garden City Public Library is proud to be running its first ever First LEGO League Robotics Team for sixth graders beginning this fall! Registration is required and begins Wednesday, September 6 at 9:30AM online via Eventkeeper (www.gardencitypl.org). As per First LEGO League rules, there is a limit of 10 members per team and therefore registration is limited to the first 10 sixth graders who sign up.

Team meetings will be held Tuesdays and/or Thursday from 4PM-5PM, except where noted:

High Society in New York & London: Beyond Downton Abbey

Marilyn Carminio examines three decades of high society on both sides of the Atlantic beginning in 1870’s New York and concluding with the Edwardian Era in London. She will examine the intricate codes of conduct defined by “the” Mrs. Astor, society’s undisputed leader, along with changes brought about from the entrance of the new rich led by Mrs. Vanderbilt. Then it’s off to Edwardian England and the American “Dollar Princesses” who exchanged money for titles. This social history of the era will define appropriate etiquette for ladies and gentlemen of the period from the right way to cut a cherry tomato to the “proper” rules of conducting an affair! All are welcome. No registration necessary.

Cut Out the Falls: A Fall Prevention Program

Presented by Lori Ginsberg, RN, MA                                                                                                                                                                                                 Program Director, Community Health Initiatives Center for Equity of Care                                                                                                                                   
Every second of the day in the United States, an older adult falls—making falls the leading cause of injury and deaths from injury among older Americans. Falls and fall injuries are more common than strokes and can result in health problems that are just as serious.  Falls are also the number one reason older adults lose their independence.  Falling, however, is not an inevitable part of aging and many falls are preventable.  Taking some simple steps to prevent falls can help you or those you love stay active, confident and independent. Registration is not required for this program and it is open to all.
