New Health Program at the library!
We are excited to again partner with the Aging & Disability Resource Center to offer a new program called Stepping On. This health program builds confidence and teaches ways to reduce falls. Learn strength and balance exercises as well as gain knowledge about how medication, vision changes, and footwear affect the risk of falling. This is an interactive workshop with guest speakers. For questions please contact the Aging & Disability Resource Center at 920-787-6666.
When: Every Wednesday; September 19th-October 31st
Come join us! A Memory Café is a social gathering place where individuals with memory loss, mild cognitive impairment, early Alzheimer’s, or other dementias can come together. Family and friends are encouraged to join! We’ll meet once a month so you can visit, share common interests, and enjoy refreshments. Each monthly café is unique and offers a program or activity that’s stimulating and fun. Activities will be chosen by participants, depending on interests.
A local patron and photographer, Bob Stoil, will be here to talk about whooping cranes and display his beautiful photographs. The library also has some of his photos on display by the fireplace in the adult section. Please come and check them out.
If you would like to donate candy for the Town of Rome Halloween Part on October 31st, the library is a drop off site. Please make sure bags of candy contain individually wrapped pieces. For example: Willy Wonka mix or Hersey Chocolate mix. If you have questions, please call the library.
The library is excited to have performers coming in November. We will have Chad Lewis here giving a presentation about Wisconsin Gangsters on November 13th and back by popular demand, Jeff Pockat will be here on November 28th telling stories and playing Gaelic music on his harps. Both of these programs are free to the public and we hope you can attend.
Why should kids have all the fun? We will have programs for our adult patrons to enjoy including crafts, guest speakers and prizes. Watch for upcoming dates on our webpage, Facebook, Instagram, and in the library. Registration will start at the end of October.
