Maybe it's a turtle on a cross country adventure or a young girl on an out-of this world journey to Mars - join FableVision and the Needham Free Public Library to make your story come to life with Animation-ish. FableVision Learning’s Animation-ish is a web-based leveled animation program where creators Ages 5 and up can make their mark move. During this three week program, children will virtually join Andrea Calvin of FableVision on a creative journey using Animation-ish. Participants will create storyboards and use Animation-ish to design their animation, workshop ideas with others, and then share the final project in a culminating, virtual film showcase.
*This is a three week series and attendees are expected to attend all three sessions*

*So Scotty came back last week and was a hit! (as we know he would be!) T’ai Chi is a slow-motion, moving meditative exercise for relaxation and health. Scott has studied various forms of martial arts since 1983, including T’ai Chi. Studies have shown that T’ai Chi can help you live longer, improve muscle strength, balance and flexibility, boost cognitive function, improve COPD symptoms, get better night-time sleep quality, improve symptoms of fibromyalgia, see improvements in cardiovascular fitness, reduce risk of falls, obtain moderate benefits for chronic nonspecific neck pain and more. Try it!

*We can't be in the cozy library, but Kerrie always finds a cozy spot in her new home to have us all relax and rid ourselves of anxiety. Even if you have never meditated before, now is the time to give it a try. You won't regret it - especially when Kerrie runs it.

*Our friend, Paul will be facilitating his regularly scheduled program Clutter Support Group via Zoom. Here is what Paul shared, "The Clutter Support Group is a gathering of men and women who meet weekly in order to solve their common problems of hoarding, cluttering and procrastinating. The only requirement to attend is the desire to change these negative habits and help one another. Our mission is to help to provide members with the tools and skills needed to live a clutter free life. We offer understanding, trust and hope in a caring, compassionate and discreet environment. With support, our desire is to help our members live a better life physically and emotionally.
