As items are sold, new ones appear daily, thanks to the hard-working book sale volunteers, who always seem to have an un-ending supply of tantalizing offerings. All sales support the library.

Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation Class
Tuesday, Dec. 18, 7 – 8 p.m.
Mindfulness is being fully aware and at peace in the present moment, without judgment or strife. It is a tool – one that is accessible at anytime and anyplace – to free oneself from the trap of reactive living and tendency of the mind to dwell on the past and worry about the future. In this workshop, Andy Lee will introduce you to simple and effective mindfulness practices, including meditation that will help you cultivate awareness in your daily life. Andy has studied and practiced mindfulness meditation for over 12 years and conducts Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Programs and free meditation classes in Fairfield and Westchester counties. Join us to reset yourself before the December holidays. Registration highly recommended.
