Snazzy Self-Care for Tweens & Teens

February 6th & 27th from 3:30-5:30 PM

February tends to focus on love for family, friends, & significant others - but what about giving ourselves TLC?

Visit the Community Room to enjoy some creative self-care, including zentangling, coloring, rock-painting, board games, puzzles, bubbles, light reading, and more! We will be playing funny animal videos on the big screen for extra stress relief (and there may be an impromptu dance party if the mood strikes).  

This is a drop-in program. For more details or to volunteer to help out, please contact Miss Allison.  


Streamlining Your Possessions w/ Laura Weiler

Thursday, January 23rd from 7-8:30 pm

On Thursday, January 23rd, join Laura Weiler, professional organizer of An Organized Start, for a presentation on downsizing and streamlining your home and possessions: how to put your home and possessions in order now, so that you can enjoy the benefits of an uncluttered home, pass on treasured items with intention, and ensure that your loved ones will not be faced with the daunting and emotional task of deciding these things for you during a difficult time.

In conjunction with NIH and NLM, Sharon Public Library presents A Living Person's Guide to Dying, a multi-part speaker series about death and dying, green burials, digital estate planning, and more. Although death is an inevitable reality of life, we often delay conversations about the topic until after the fact--a habit that can create unnecessary stress or confusion about our end-of-life wishes. The Library is seeking to launch an honest, open series of discussions around this important topic.
