 Introduction to Tai Chi Program – February 19

Sally Swenson from Dallas County Hospital will be the guest presenter for a free adult program about Tai Chi at 7 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 19 at the Carnegie Library Museum. Learn about the art and execution of Tai Chi, watch demonstrations and practice some beginning moves and positions along with the instructor. This is a great opportunity to find out more about this ancient discipline, which is both healthful and relaxing. Tai Chi is appropriate for all ability levels, and many moves may be done from a seated position. The class will meet on the lower level courtroom area of the Carnegie Library Museum. Please enter through the handicapped-accessible door on the east side of the building. The event is free and open to the public.

Take Your Child to the Library Day

The Perry Public Library will participate in the national Take Your Child to the Library Day from 10 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 21. This event aims to promote greater use of the library by families with children and to encourage parents to get a library card for each child. Kids will enjoy balloon animals with magician Rick Eugene, face painting and a visit from a guest animal. Each child will take home a free book. If you are not already using the library, come and see what you have been missing, and plan to build good reading habits with the whole family in 2015.

Please contact the Perry Public Library at 515-465-3569 if you have questions about any of these events.
