Springtime Qigong Classes 7:00 PM
Springtime Qigong Classes
Pronounced “che-gong”, Qigong is a traditional Chinese mindful exercise system for cultivating and strengthening the body’s vital energy. Also known as “Chinese Yoga,” Qigong consists of a series of slow-flowing movements, which gently stretch muscles, tendons and ligaments. Similar to Tai Chi, these low-impact exercises heighten awareness of the mind-body-breath connection. Meditation and visualization are also a part of Qigong practice. Using the mind, the practitioner gathers, guides and circulates internal energy with graceful and precise movements. Qigong can be practiced by all age groups and can easily be adapted for the physically challenged. Everyone is welcome to join us for weekly classes by local resident Bianca Godoy. No previous experience or registration required.  Read more...

The Library will be closed on June 7th for a Staff Education Day.

"Red Print": Honoring African American Women of Morristown

A fingerprint is an impression left by the friction of ridges of a human finger. Human fingerprints are detailed, nearly unique, difficult to alter, and durable over the life of an individual, making them suitable as long-term markers of human identity. The Morristown Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc., invites you to "Red Print", an exhibit of deliberate impressions through art and life.

The exhibit will feature historical photographs of African American women of Morristown. There will also be presentations of African American women educators who broke the barriers of racism and sexism to make major strides in the Morris School District.
