PRENATAL YOGA/RHYMES AND STORIES FOR YOUNG PARENTS

Friday, April 24th, 2015

11:00AM

At The Plains Library

The Plains Library is offering a free series of prenatal yoga classes each Friday, beginning March 27 thru April 24 at 11:00am. This will be a series of 5 classes presented by Kristen Wade E-RYT200, who has specialized training in prenatal and children’s yoga. As well as yoga, there will be handouts of songs and rhymes each week provided by Children’s Librarian, Betty Ranck. If you have preschool age children they are invited to attend and take part in activities provided by Betty during the class. This is a wonderful opportunity to relax for an hour each week and meet other young mothers. Learn how you can enrich the lives of your children by sharing books and how the library can help.

Following this series there will be a special luncheon for parents to learn about Early Literacy. There will be free books for all attendees. The Early Literacy Luncheon will take place May 1 @ 11:00.
