RAD Self Defense
Officers from the Guilderland Police Department will be at GPL on Monday, Oct. 15, at 5:30 p.m., to start the three-session Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) program for women. The course is a total of 12 hours long, and the two follow-up sessions are Tuesday, Oct. 16, at 5:30 p.m., and Tuesday, Oct. 23, at 5:30 p.m.
RAD training is not a typical self-defense course, instead it teaches students how to survive attacks.
This program is for women 16 years of age and older. No experience is necessary. You must attend all 3 sessions. Wear comfortable clothing and footwear. Consider bringing a light snack and water.
Seats are limited. Register by phone at 518-456-2400 ext. 3, in person, or online at www.guilderlandlibrary.org

A Change for Good
Giving you a framework and tools needed to Change for Good, this workshop at the Library on Wednesday, Oct. 17, at 6 p.m. will help you implement positive personal change for life.
Whether your goal is to start a healthy habit, save money, perform better at work, or end self-defeating behavior, this workshop is for you. Change does not depend on luck or willpower. It is a process that can be successfully managed by anyone who understands how it works. Efficient self-change depends on doing the right thing at the right time. Presented by David Przybyla, MS, CHES, on behalf of CDPHP.
