You may have grown up, but growing old is something else entirely!

Do you have what it takes to beat your fellow adults?


Tea with T.K.

t’s time to chose your side-will you be a Jedi, fighting for the light side of the force, seeking peace, wisdom, & balance?

Time:  3:30 pm – 5:30 pm

Mandalas are an ancient art form and a way of looking at the universe, from the structure of an atom to a galaxy. For Sharon, drawing them contributed to growing feelings of acceptance and hope when she discovered she had cancer. Sharon has successfully shared her method of drawing mandalas with people who feel they have no artistic talent, allowing them to create their own works of art. If you are interested in learning to draw them yourself, please email her at #ob#bgrorne#at#tznvy.pbz#ob#. Space is limited, so please email her to reserve your space today! If you have kids & no babysitter, there will be a Disney film showing in another area of the library so you are free to learn art without distractions.
