Support groups at BPL
Two relatively new support groups are meeting here at the library to help local residents connect with local resources and new friends. The Children of Aging Parents, a monthly gathering for adult children of aging parents, meets at 6 p.m. Thursday Feb. 10 to share tips on ways to make life easier. The Mental Illness Support Group is still in the process of formation for schedule information and to discover how you can help speak with Julia or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Programs for writers and artists
Whether you work with the pen or the paintbrush, it's great to have a community to work with. The library currently offers several opportunities to do just that. At 7 p.m. alternate Tuesdays, local writers meet in the storytime room to support each other and share their progress. This month's sessions will be held on Feb. 8 and 22. Female artists from 13 on up are invited to join the girlVIRUS crew on the third Saturday of each month from noon to 3 p.m. This month's meet up will include an afterhours screening of selected horror films in honor of Women in Horror month. Tea and coffee setup provided, but feel free to bring snacks to share.
