SYRACUSE — Adults have several avenues available to explore new interests at the Syracuse Public Library.
Join mahjong at 1 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays in the downstairs meeting room. Players of all skill levels, including beginners, are welcome at the table.
At 9:30 a.m. Mondays and Thursdays, Becky Brower offers Youthful Yoga. Chair yoga can improve your flexibility, concentration and strength while boosting mood and reducing stress and joint strain. There are no floor routines involved in the program.
Since this program occurs before the library opens, knock on the Harrison Street door near the staff parking lot for entrance.
The Workshop, Syracuse Public Library’s adult writer’s group, will meet at 1 p.m. Tuesday, March 21, in the downstairs meeting room. Writers and poets are encouraged to attend and share their work or listen to others’ pieces. Members also like discussing various writing-related topics.
The In the Garden group meets at 1 p.m. Thursday, March 23, in the downstairs meeting room to continue its work on signs that raise awareness for native plants and pollinators.
The group is asking for unwanted, paintable junk items, such as scrap wood, paint lids, trash can lids, old saw blades, etc. Members will turn these items into signs. Contact Brower at [email protected] or through the library (574) 457-3022 for more information.
Children can join LEGO Club at 4 p.m. each Monday in the downstairs meeting room. Each week, there is a new building challenge for them to complete.
Preschool children are invited to story time at 10:30 a.m. each Wednesday in the children’s department. During this program, children enjoy picture books, play and a craft. Home school class is also at 10:30 a.m. each Wednesday, and home-schooled children learn about a different topic each week. The topic for March 22 is skeletons. While children attend the program, adults are encouraged to network and share home-schooling resources.
