QiGong, and its related form Tai Chi, is a form of gentle exercise that emphasizes deliberate, careful, almost dance-like movements. Experience the benefits of this exercise when you come to the first of three Tai Chi and QiGong, with Rich Goodhart sessions on Thursday, Aug. 9, at 11 a.m.
Developed more than 1,000 years ago in China, the practice helps strengthen and relax muscles and joints. Even more important: studies have found it to be excellent for fall prevention. Rich Goodhart is a certified Tai Chi/QiGong instructor, and has taught at both the Omega Institute and the Kripalu Center, in Lenox, Massachusetts.
Space is limited. Please register by calling (518)456-2400, extension 3, or go online to www.guilderlandlibrary.org and go to Aug. 9 on the events calendar.
When you register, please sign up for the two following sessions — on Thursday, Sept. 6, and Thursday, Sept. 27 (both at 11 a.m.) — as instruction is cumulative.
Incumbent Trustee Nareen Rivas and recently elected Trustee Michael Marcantonio were sworn in to their five-year terms on the Guilderland Public
Library’s Board of Trustees by Board President Bryan Best at the July 24 board meeting.

They are going fast
If you have not yet registered for the 1950s-themed Family Sock Hop happening at GPL on Friday, Aug. 3, at noon, please register now by coming to the library, or calling us at (518) 456-2400 extension 4. This is going to be a lot of fun for everyone. It’d be a shame to miss it.
And tickets for the Pop Ups
They are flying out the door. Please, if you want to see the Pop Ups’ “The Great Pretenders Club” show at GPL on Friday, Aug. 10, at 2 p.m., stop by the library today or tomorrow to make sure you can get a ticket.
