Hatha Yoga Class Wednesdays in August from 5:30pm -6:30 pm Celebrate Spring and Hump Day with a slow but empowering yoga class suitable for all levels of experience. We will focus on alignment in the postures, while being mindful of body, breath, and mind. The practice of yoga is the perfect way to reset yourself in the season of renewal! Classes will be taught by Huntington resident Tania Dornic O’Neal. Tania is a certified and registered yoga teacher, who received her 200 HR RYT training in April 2015. She has taught classes locally at Balance Yoga Studio in Richmond, as well as at the Lund Family Center in Burlington through Sangha Studio’s yoga service program.
Classes are $10 each, with $1 of that fee to the Huntington Public Library. While classes are drop-in, it would be helpful to know ahead of time how many of you plan to attend. You can contact Tania with any questions, or to let her know you are coming, at 802-355-4013(call or text).

Summer Reading Program This summer’s theme is “Building a Better World.” The Summer Reading Program is open to all children entering kindergarten through eighth grade. Write down your book titles as you read, visit the library, show the librarian your Reading Record (or a piece of paper), and you can earn $10 in Gift Tokens for the Farmer’s Market in Richmond after you have visited the library five times.
Build a Better World Raffle Do you know someone who helps “Build a Better World” by doing good things? This person may be an adult or a child. Come in to the Library, write that good deed on a raffle ticket (you do not have to say who did the good deed, unless you want to!) then write your name to enter the raffle. At the end of the summer we will put all the entries together to build a “building of good things!”
