Week at a Glance at the Library

Friday, July 26

2 p.m. — Friday Afternoon Movie: First Man — To honor the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, we will show First Man starring Ryan Gosling. It’s the riveting story of NASA’s mission to land a man on the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the years 1961-1969. A visceral, first-person account, based on the book by James R. Hansen, the movie explores sacrifices and costs—on Armstrong and on the nation—of one of the most dangerous missions in history. Rated PG-13.


Saturday, Aug. 3

12:30 p.m. Gentle Flow Yoga — Certified yoga instructor Lauralee Sikorski, who has taught more than 5,000 hours of classes, will lead a free gentle flow yoga with emphasis on deep breathing and releasing stress. Bring your own mat, wear comfortable attire and come on an empty stomach.
