Purple Friday Mindfulness Workshop for Kids!

Fri, 09/20/2019 - 10:30am
1200 11th St
Bellingham, WA 98225-7015

We're all learning the importance of mindfulness - learning to quiet the mind and focus on the present moment. This is just as vital for kids as it is for adults and we are going to spend an hour doing activities that do just that. We'll read stories, learn some breathing exercises, practice some yoga, and create a glitter jar! 

Ages 6-11

Banned Books Week

Sun, 09/22/2019 (All day) to Sat, 09/28/2019 (All day)
1200 11th St
Bellingham, WA 98225-7015

Banned Books Week (September 22-28, 2019) is an annual event that highlights the benefits of unrestricted reading and draws attention to censorship attempts. This year's Banned Books Week theme is "Censorship Leaves Us in the Dark. Keep the Light On." Censorship leaves us in the dark by extinguishing information and silencing challenging discussions. But there are places that keep the light on, allowing everyone to access materials from an array of viewpoints.
