Library Updates

Parking lot access limited

When you visit the library this week, please be aware that the back parking lot may be inaccessible as the Town is working to replace storm drains. We hope they will be finished before the end of the week, but until then, please come in through the front door of the mill and down the elevator instead. We are sorry for the inconvenience!

Restorative Yoga This Thursday


In restorative yoga, props are used to support the body so that you can hold poses for longer, allowing you to open your body through passive stretching. The postures are usually adapted from supine or seated yoga poses with the addition of blocks, bolsters, blankets and straps.

Here’s What to Expect from RESTORATIVE YOGA

Restorative classes are usually very relaxing and are a good compliment to more active practices. The yoga instructor will arrange props with you. The lights may be dimmed and if it is chilly, you may want to cover up with a blanket since you will not be warming up the body the way you would do in a regular class. After you are set up in a pose with all your props, you will relax completely in the pose for an extended period, often between ten and twenty minutes. Although you are supported, you will definitely still feel the stretch. It’s a relaxing style of practice that leaves you feeling open and refreshed!

Here’s What You’ll Need to Bring to RESTORATIVE YOGA

A bolster or pillows
Blanket or blankets to roll up and use as bolsters
Strap or old ties/ belts
Eye mask (optional, but nice!)
