Our First Chair Yoga Class

The debut on February 8 of our Chair Yoga class with the wonderful Candace from Twisted Sister Yoga brought out 20+ folks - some were experienced at yoga while the rest of us tried it for the first time. You’re welcome to join us again on February 22 and each month thereafter on the second and fourth Thursdays, 3:30 to 4:15. Suggested donation is $10 per class - worth every cent.
Think using a chair is for sissies? No way…

Chair Yoga Coming to Roxbury Library!

Coming to the Roxbury Library February 8, 2024: Chair Yoga with Twisted Sister Yoga!
Beginning February 8, 2024 and continuing on the SECOND and FOURTH Thursdays of each month at 3:30, Chair Yoga will be offered for all ages. Each session will run approximately 45 minutes.
Yoga is for everybody and every body. We are aging and want to do it with grace and ease. Movement is essential. In this class we will work with a chair to learn basic movements to oil our joints, soften the fascia, improve our balance and strengthen our muscles. We will also learn some breathing practices and tools to quiet our mind. NO experience necessary: just wear comfy clothes and show up, have fun, and reap the benefits!
Suggested Donation per session: $10.00
For more information, contact the library at 607-326-7901.

Final Count: 19 Pillowcases for Ryan’s Case for Smiles

Our terrific volunteer squad has completed 19 pillowcases, instead of the originally planned 10 cases! The patterns are so sweet - imagine how happy children will be to have such vibrant color in otherwise institutionally neutral hospital rooms. We thank them so very much for their dedication to this project - and it’s been way too much fun hosting them!
Again, our gratitude to Sarah Porter, Maggie Pebler, Kathy Zummo, Roxanne Lindner, and Chris Durham for their sewing talents and the inimitable in-house entertainment.
Special thanks to Lori and Katie Rosa of Bloom of Margaretville for final delivery to Albany Medical Center pediatric units, and to Becky Porter for donating additional pillowcases.

Check Out - Really - Our New Titles!

SO many new titles…..and they’re going out quickly on interlibrary loan. Better hurry in!
Our heartfelt thanks to our good friend Joan Kemp for her recent Facebook Birthday Fundraiser! (Such a great idea and we definitely encourage copycats…).
With the funds Joan raised we were able to purchase much needed new books for both adults and early readers - stop in and browse!

Our Caring Volunteers Give Their Time

The Roxbury Library is pleased to announce that our staff of dedicated volunteers have taken on a new project for themselves!  They are creating ten pillowcases in conjunction with Ryan’s Case for Smiles to Albany Medical Center pediatric patients.  Sewing began on January 3 and will continue until all pillowcases are completed.  Ryan’s Case for Smiles (formerly ConKerr Cancer) was founded in 2007 to bring comfort and support to young patients and their families in hospitals around the globe.  They started with a simple goal:  to create and distribute whimsical pillowcases that give children an emotional boost and remind them that they are not defined by their illness.  Today, Ryan’s Case for Smiles programs have expanded to include the children’s entire families so they can better navigate and cope with a very difficult experience and avoid long term emotional trauma.

Volunteers involved in this project were Sarah Porter - organizer, Maggie Pebler, Kathy Zummo, Roxanne Lindner, and Chris Durham (not pictured).

Bloom of Margaretville, owners Lori and Katie Rosa, will be distributing the completed pillowcases to Albany Medical Center.
