Learn about finance, health, yoga, genealogy this month at the library
First, thank you to all the people who responded to the library’s survey on Adulting 101 classes. Nearly all the respondents said they were interested in classes having to do with finance, so that will be our starting point.
Not surprisingly, we have found great people willing to come and share their expertise – read on.
Banking and finance
On the first three Mondays of November, December and January, Stephens Central Library will offer a series presented by banking and investment professionals that includes a good basis for managing this important part of “adulting.”
Topics to be covered are banking, loans, credit management, beginning investing, saving for retirement and much more. There will be time each evening for questions.
These classes will begin at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 5 in the Sugg Community Room and are free and open to the public.
Hearts of Health
Another series of classes will be by registered nurse and health coach Alicia Lown. Lown will present her program on first Tuesdays beginning Nov. 6 at 6:30 p.m.
She will present in-depth information on boosting your family’s immunity; why America is gaining weight; preventing Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and dementia; pet health and much more. Lown is also providing healthy snacks and door prizes.
The programs are free and open to the public in the Sugg Community Room on the third floor. Lown’s book, “Hearts of Health,” is available for check out at Stephens Library.
Yoga under the Stars
This promises to be a fun evening that is good for your body, spirit and outlook on the universe. The evening will start at 5:30 pm with a 30-minute yoga work out, then after a brief break, take a look through the library’s telescopes and explore the moon and planets.
The first of four such evenings will be Nov. 19 on the roof of Stephens Central Library. Bring your own mat if you have one.
Beginning Genealogy Class
The class offered last month filled quickly, so the San Angelo Genealogical & Historical Society is offering another Nov. 17. If you are new to genealogy, this class is just what you need.
Lisa Mahler of SAHGC will teach the class in the computer lab from 1-4 p.m. Students will learn how to use U.S. Census records to trace family members and review Ancestry, FamilySearch, FindAGrave and Heritage Quest websites.
Mahler suggests that you bring note-taking material and any information you already know about parents, grandparents and great-grandparents.
A working phone number and email address is required to register. This information will be used to contact registrants prior to the class. Call 325-655-7321 to enroll in this free class.
Get holiday crafts finished
The last Get Crafty Saturday of the year will be Nov. 17. Crafters of all varieties are invited to the Sugg Community Room to work on projects of their choosing from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Bring all your supplies, snacks, task lighting and extension cords if you need them and enjoy working as long as you like without the distractions of home. Invite your fellow crafters and make a day of it.
Family Game Day
Also on Nov. 17, 2-9 p.m., families are invited to play the Library’s games on the third floor of Stephens Central Library. This is a great way to spend time together for a little friendly rivalry and skill building. Bring your friends!
During November, TGC Libraries will be closed over three weekdays. On the 12th, all County offices will be closed to observe Veterans Day, and all will be closed Thursday and Friday, Nov. 22-23, for Thanksgiving. All three libraries will be open the Saturday following Thanksgiving.
Go to tgclibrary.com for more information about these and other library events and to download audio and e-books, use Lynda.com, learn a language and also for library account care such as renewing books, viewing your saved lists or to check which books you have read. Stay current at your library!
