Virtual Journaling for Wellness
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

During uncertain times, a journaling practice can help us articulate our thoughts and challenges on the page. This Zoom workshop includes a brief discussion about the health benefits of journaling, short and sweet freewriting exercises and tips about how to sustain greater self-compassion and self-awareness through writing. No previous writing experience necessary, just a willingness to play on the page. Registration Required.

BIO: A graduate of the Program for Writers at Warren Wilson College (MFA Creative Writing), Lara Tupper taught writing at Rutgers University for many years and now presents online writing classes from the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts. For ten years she was a faculty member at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, where she led journaling workshops and retreats for thousands of guests seeking wellness practices. She is founder of Swift Ink Stories and author of three books (the novels Off Island and A Thousand and One Nights and a forthcoming short story collection, Amphibians, 2021). http://www.laratupper.com

Book Donation Drop Off
9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

The BOOK DROP is BACK!!

Yes, folks, the West Newbury Library BOOK DROP is coming back for a trial run on Saturday, December 5th from 9:00-12:00.
In keeping with the needs for social distancing- this year’s Book Drop will feature a Drive Through System!

PLEASE follow these Directions: Drive NE on Rte 113 (towards Newburyport). When you reach Old Town Hall, take a right into the preschool driveway, turn around and line up for a one-by-one drop off at the front door.  Once your car reaches the front door, Friends of the Library will unload boxed and bagged books from your vehicle for you. From there- the boxes will be relayed to another set of tables…to rest in quarantine for 4-5 days.

DO NOT linger after your drop off.  DO NOT come in the building.  DO WEAR Face Masks.

As always, please bring books that are in good condition and gently loved.

NO magazines. NO textbooks or encyclopedias.  NO moldy or torn books.   Adult and children’s books, dvds, cds and puzzles are welcome.

Please- NO more than four boxes of books at one time.  If you have an unusually large amount of books-you will need to make an appointment for them to be received.

Drivers are required to wear face masks as well as anyone else present in a drop-off car.

Let’s see how SUCCESSFUL this new drive -through system will be!!
