For centuries we have known that the health of the brain and body are connected. Now science is able to provide insight into how lifestyle choices may help you keep your brain and body healthy as you age. Join us to learn about research in the areas of diet and nutrition, exercise, cognitive activity and social engagement. You will learn to use hands-on tools to help you incorporate these recommendations into a plan for your healthy aging. Please call the library to register: 716-287-2945. This program is supported in part by a grant from the New York State Department of Health and the Western NY Alzheimer’s Association.

Thanks to volunteer Sue Livermore, we are able to offer a class in basic knitting. The library will provide all the supplies and Sue will give instruction to about 6-8 participants. This class would be appropriate for ages 11 and up. You must be registered to attend by September 14th to give us time to collect supplies. Call 716-287-2945 to register. Sue has offered to lead a monthly class if participants want to get together on a regular basis. They will be able to decide that at the first class. We’d love to make room for a Knitting Class on our regular monthly calendar! We also would appreciate any donations of number 6,7 or 8 knitting needles and cotton yarn The first class will be teaching how to make a scrubbing dishrag.
Glass Artist, Jean Smith will be presenting a class on creating art with tumbles glass. Tumbled glass is made by collecting old dishes, drinking glasses, etc. and smashing them to make smaller pieces. Those are then placed in a tumbler so they are polished and all the edges are smooth. This process creates a beautifully colored piece of glass that you can create art with. In this class every participant will go home with a 4×6 framed glass picture. Jean will bring with her samples and pictures you can choose from to make. All supplies are included and the cost of the class is $15 each. We have a limited class size and at this time we only have 5 spaces left. Call the library soon to reserve your spot. Payment is not needed until the day of the class
