Yoga, Poetry, art and More

     The remaining Chair Yoga classes in the Community Room are as follows: March 3rd, 10th, 17th, and 24th will all be hybrid, and March 31st will be Zoom only. We’ll be considering additional classes for our Wellness Program for future sessions, so look for information about dates and times coming up.

     We’re getting ready to send out submission forms for our popular Poetry Contest, and once we receive all the original poems and finish judging them, we’ll be holding our awards celebration on May 17th at the Intermediate School cafetorium. Brochures will be available later this month on how to submit a poem.

    This year’s Art Show and Sale will take place in the magazine section of the library the week of April 22nd through the 28th with intake of submissions on April 20th and 21st. More soon on the guidelines of what and how to submit one of your pieces to the show.

      Finally, with the strange contrasts in our weather lately, it’s been difficult planning activities to get us through the rest of the winter and early spring. Indoor weather, though, is more predictable, so with that in mind, why not check out the Museum Pass program at the library, sponsored by the Friends? Depending on the museum, the program allows for free or reduced admission rates for adults and children to a wide variety of local museums and sites that will offer welcome variety to the remaining days of winter and early spring when being outdoors can be pretty iffy! Some of the museums available in the program include the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, The Penn Museum of Archeology and Anthropology, the Mutter Museum, Eastern State Penitentiary, the African American Museum in Philadelphia, the Academy of Natural Sciences, the Philadelphia Insectarium and Butterfly Pavilion, the Newark Museum of Art, the Battleship New Jersey, Independence Seaport Museum, the Mercer Museum and Fonthill Castle, Museum of the American Revolution, and National Liberty Museum. There are others for indoor and outdoor visits, so check out the program at the library and plan a weekend excursion soon before it (finally) snows and you’re stuck indoors! Visit the library’s website or call 856-665-5959, ext. 3 to check on the availability of any passes you’re interest in. Only library members in good standing are eligible to use the program, however, so if you’re not already a member, this sounds like the perfect time to become one!

     The Friends of the Pennsauken Free Public Library are always looking for new members, so if you’re interested in helping the library or helping us come up with new and exciting events, please call us at 856- 665-595 9, ext. 7 and leave a message so we can get back to you.
