Programs for Adults


Adult Book to Movie Club

Next meeting Wednesday February 21 at 6:00pm. Title: "Hidden Figures"
The Book to Movie Club is designed for those that love a good book but also love a good movie, and like to compare the two.

Each month there will be a new title to read. Read the book on your own, and come to the library to watch the movie (DVD copies will also be available for you to watch the movie at home). Then meet and share!

This program is designed for adults of all ages. Our first title will be "Hidden Figures". See a librarian for a copy of the book and/or movie. Discussion will be held Wed Feb 21 at 6:00pm.

Thursdays, 4:00pm Do you want to learn how to play Mahjong, one of the oldest games, played by thousands of people?  Are you confused by the game's rules?  There is only one way to learn:  play, play again, and then play some more!  This tile game involves skill, strategy, and calculation along with a bit of luck.  All materials will be provided.  If you are an experienced player, we hope you will join us too!
 

Advanced Directives Workshop:  Friday, February 23rd, 6-8pm:  After an emergency call about a loved one experiencing a medical crisis, what commonly follows is a trip to the hospital. While at the hospital, you may interact with over 20 new people. For both the patient and family, being in a hospital can be confusing, frightening, overwhelming. Coping with the special world of a hospital, providing good information for professionals and supporting your loved one can be quite challenging.  We hope to give you answers that will help.

We are pleased to have Elisabeth Burghardt of Mt. Ascutney Hospital and Health Center discuss:
· Who are the professionals I will see ?
· How do I get my questions answered?
· What are the first 48-hours at the hospital like?
· What resources are typically available at a hospital to help the patient and the family?

The second half of the workshop will be dedicated to the discussion of advance directives and helping people fill out their advance directives. Forms for Vermont and New Hampshire will be provided.  For details and to RSVP, please visit:
