Jackson Hole WIld on Tour: Conservation FIlm Series
7:00 PM

Radnor Memorial Library, along with its partners Radnor Conservancy, Radnor Bird Town, and Radnor Township’s EAC, invite you to attend our 1st winter and spring conservation film series that features 5 award-winning, outstanding films that will educate and inspire us to become engaged in conservation. We have purchased rights to screen films that were entered at the 2015 Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival. All of the filmmakers, who are passionate about their craft and the world we live in, love sharing their films with smaller audiences in the hope that it invites discussion after the screening. The artists, who themselves are involved in conservation, hope to empower us in our local communities to get involved.

This month's film:

Natural World-Bat Man of Mexico-BBC TWO Production. David Attenborough narrates the story of Rodrigo Medellin, Mexico’s very own “Batman”. As a kid, Medellin kept vampire bats. And bats became Rodrigo’s thing: he has devoted his life to saving and protecting them.

This film series will be screened at Radnor Township Building, 301 Iven Avenue, Wayne, PA 19087.

Color Me Happy
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Coloring for Adults is here at Newtown Public Library! Drop in, pick up some colored pencils and color for your own well-being on coloring pages, all supplied by the library or bring your own. But why coloring?

Coloring actually has been shown to have many benefits for adults. According to WebJunction, many libraries believe that coloring supports health literacy, pointing to research that indicates that it de-stresses and lessens anxiety in adults, and can be especially beneficial to people with brain damage or dementia. Coloring also invites creativity and stretching imagination muscles from childhood that may have gone dormant while fulfilling the responsibilities of adulthood.

Coloring creates social connection, both as a way for the library to connect with the community, and for community members to connect with each other, overcoming isolation and loneliness. It’s also a chance for library staff to help patrons informally with books they might enjoy or information they may be seeking, or simply to introduce people to the other programs and services the library and the community at large offers.

And finally, coloring is just fun! Please join us and see how coloring to happiness helps you.

Color Me Happy
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Coloring for Adults is here at Newtown Public Library! Drop in, pick up some colored pencils and color for your own well-being on coloring pages, all supplied by the library or bring your own. But why coloring?

Coloring actually has been shown to have many benefits for adults. According to WebJunction, many libraries believe that coloring supports health literacy, pointing to research that indicates that it de-stresses and lessens anxiety in adults, and can be especially beneficial to people with brain damage or dementia. Coloring also invites creativity and stretching imagination muscles from childhood that may have gone dormant while fulfilling the responsibilities of adulthood.

Coloring creates social connection, both as a way for the library to connect with the community, and for community members to connect with each other, overcoming isolation and loneliness. It’s also a chance for library staff to help patrons informally with books they might enjoy or information they may be seeking, or simply to introduce people to the other programs and services the library and the community at large offers.

And finally, coloring is just fun! Please join us and see how coloring to happiness helps you.

MEDITATION MONDAYS
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

The Ridley Township Public Library is offering a free Basic Meditation Workshop led by Rich Conti from the Schoolhouse Center Meditation Group. In 1 hour you will learn all you need to practice meditation on your own, at home. 

 Meditation requires no extensive training, preparation or effort. It is simple, easy and anyone can do it. A simple commitment of a few minutes a day can make a real difference in a person’s life by helping to clear the mind and reduce stress. The best way to learn about meditation is for someone to show you what to do and how to do it.

This is a health literacy program of the PA Forward Initiative.
