Mindful eating is key to healthy eating. Join us for Mindfulness Eating, on Wednesday, Nov. 7, at 6:30 p.m., for a free, CDPHP class where you’ll explore a three-step process for practicing mindful eating. You’ll evaluate your own mindless eating triggers and develop effective strategies to overcome them.
With busy work days, full social calendars, taking care of the kids – the list goes on – it can be challenging to take notice of food intake and maintain a balanced eating regimen. And although the examples above are small ways people eat without thinking, those little actions could turn into a bigger problem and sabotage your health without you even realizing.
Please register for this class by calling 518-456-2400 ext. 3. The only thing you have to lose is some weight.
Spin The Prize Wheel!
Learn about the Library’s amazing digital resources by spinning GPL’s Digital Wheel! All through November, you can come in and “take a spin” and get a little something to take home every time. Visit the adult info desk for details. Oh, and, one thing, please: One spin per person per visit, please.
Kids Vote, Too! Party
It’s Election Day! Kids are invited to come to the Library on Tuesday, November 6, from 2 to 3:30 p.m., to learn about how voting works, and get your chance to vote for your favorite pet. You’ll watch a short video, read a book, make a craft, and eat a fun patriotic snack.
Mallwalker’s & Military Awareness Expo
Staff from GPL will have a table at Crossgates Mall in the early morning of Friday, Nov. 2, to greet all of the mallwalkers. Be sure to stop and visit with us — and grab a free book too!
After your morning walk, stick around for the Capital Region’s Military Awareness Expo. The event will honor our military community and families and will provide information about job and education opportunities, recruitment, business development, and health resources. Join us and get connected with some great resources.
The Albany County Honor a Living Veteran award ceremony will be held at this event at 10:30 a.m.
Getting Your Words into the World
If you want to get your writing published and out into the world, then you need to come to Getting your Words into the World: A Writer’s Workshop, on Saturday, Nov. 17, at 10:30 am, at the Library.
Writing for your own pleasure and for those who know and love you is a life-affirming thing. But if you want to get your words out into the wider world, and create a book that is published and read by a wider audience, there is simply so much to know and so much to do.
These days, it’s critically important for women’s voices to be heard. This workshop (open to men as well!) will explore the avenues available, as well as how to navigate the broader terrain of publication and self-promotion.
The instructor is acclaimed author Nava Atlas, author of The Literary Ladies Guide to the Writing Life, and several award-winning cookbooks, including Wild About Greens.
If you want to attend, please register by calling the Library at 518-456-2400 ext. 3.
