Women’s Self-Defense Workshop

Saturday February 23 at 2pm

We are teaming up with Warrior Sisters to offer a free self-defense seminar- no experience or registration necessary, beginners welcome!

This workshop will include reality-based verbal and physical self-defense techniques, including setting boundaries, claiming space, and physical escapes.  All techniques can be modified for different levels of ability, intensity, and range of motion. Women 18+ welcome. We’ll be hosting a co-ed teen class on March 16.

Warrior Sisters is a nonprofit organization dedicated to making empowerment-based, woman-centered self-defense education accessible to all women, regardless of economic status.


In the Garden of Beasts

Join the discussion Tuesday, February 19 at 12:00 p.m. The Modern Voices Book Group will be discussing “In the Garden of Beasts”  by Erik Larson.

Everyone is welcome!  Pick up a copy of the book at the Reference Desk.

Chapter Book Club

Wednesday, February 20 at 3:30 p.m. This month’s book is, “Just Grace” by Charise Mericle Harper.  Grace is full of big ideas and LOVES cats–so when one goes missing, will she be able to solve the mystery? Copies are available in the Children’s Room—reading ahead is encouraged!

The Chapter Book club meets every third Wednesday for fun discussions and activities.
