The Fremont Area District Library is planning to host several fun and educational events in May for the whole family. These events are FREE, as always.
We’re excited to announce that we are hosting some fitness classes at the library on Mondays and Wednesdays until May 25th from 12:00-1:00 p.m. Fit for Life is a functional movement class designed to move the whole body through a series of seated and standing exercises that will increase strength, muscular endurance, balance, and flexibility. Class is low impact and great for ALL levels of fitness who are interested in working on their overall health. This class will be instructed by ACSM- certified personal trainer Megan Dickinson. Megan earned her Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science with minors in psychology and nutrition from Central Michigan University. She has been working in the fitness industry for 9 years and enjoys working with all fitness levels. Please note that class will be held May 12th instead of the 11th.
Lego Saturday will be in the Children’s Department on Saturday, May 14th from 11:00-3:00 p.m. We supply the Legos, you build them! Make some fun Lego creations and we'll display them in the library! We’ll also be showing an Afternoon Movie for kids on Thursday, May 26th at 3:30 p.m. The movie title is to be determined, and will be announced at a later date. Snacks will be served, and all are welcome.
Junk Journaling for ages 10 and up will take place on May 19th anytime between 3:00-5:00. This is a scrapbooking and journal hybrid. Use up what you have and supplement with found, recycled, repurposed and thrifted items. Materials provided.
The Wednesday Readers Book Group will meet on Monday, May 9th at 7:00 p.m. to discuss Women of Copper Country by Mary Doria Russell, and the Daytime Book Group will meet on Thursday, May 26th at 12:30 p.m. (title TBD).
