September Marks New Programs
Some people are natural organizers, while others work hard to manage objects they encounter. Problems with thing management can arise from emotions, financial confusion and a feeling of being overwhelmed. Clutter is associated with many health risks. Other people who experience the same struggles find help and ideas in a supportive environment. The Syracuse Public Library is offering a group meeting that uses supportive practices starting at noon Thursday, Sept. 9. The doors close five minutes after noon.
Children programming will return in September, with take-and-make crafts and homeschool classes each Friday morning. Be sure to follow the library on Facebook, Instagram and Youtube to learn more about the start of fall programming.
Gregg Palmer will be in the adult department to answer questions and talk about the different parts of Medicare — especially helpful for those soon to turn 65. Stop by the library at 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 26, with the next session occurring Thursday, Sept. 16.
