Gladys E. Kelly Public Library calendar of events

The Gladys E. Kelly Public Library in Webster. 2 Lake St., Webster, 508-949-3880, has listed the following calendar of events.  All programs are scheduled to be held outside on the Library lawn (unless otherwise noted), weather permitting.
Adult Programming
Yoga with Julie – Saturdays in September 10:00-11:15 a.m. Join Julie at Gladys Kelly for a vinyasa yoga class for all levels. In Sanskrit, Vinyasa yoga translates to the “uniting of movement with breath.” A typical class involves a centering of the mind with the breath, aromatherapy, movement of the body to release energetic blockages and, finally, a rest and relaxation. Classes are free for Gladys Kelly patrons, and will take place in the Library’s Community Room.
Fall Concert Series: Mark Mandeville and Raianne Richards – September 11, 2:00 p.m. Mark Mandeville and Raianne Richards have contributed their first decade to the legacy of American folk and country music, sharing emotively intelligent lyrics, unmistakable vocal harmonies, and a unique blend of instrumentation with audiences throughout the US and Canada. The songs poetically reflect their personal experience as factory workers, teachers, community organizers and natives of postindustrial mill towns in central Massachusetts. Accompanying themselves on guitar, harmonica, ukulele, penny whistle, electric bass, and most uniquely clarinet, their live performance is often punctuated by humorous commentary. Concert is scheduled to be held outside, but will happen in the Library Community Room in case of rain. Please bring a chair or blanket if the concert is being held outside!
Indoor Movie Night – third Thursday of the month, beginning September 16, at 6:00 p.m.  Join us monthly on the third Thursday of each month as we show a new release film. We’ll make theatre-style popcorn for you to enjoy! The film selection changes each month, call the Library for this month’s title: 508-949-3880.
Book Discussion Group – September 20, 6:30 p.m. The Gladys E. Kelly Public Library Adult Book Discussion Group meets at 6:30 pm on the third Monday of the month.  New members are always welcome! Next month’s book discussion will be on Monday, September 20th at 6:30PM the meeting will take place via Zoom, and will be about the book A Woman of No Importance by Sonia Purnell. Stop by the library, or reach out by phone to 508-949-3880, or by email to [email protected] for inquiries.
