Tai Chi at the Library

Tai Chi is a series of slow, gentle movements with many benefits, such as improved strength, balance and flexibility, reduced stress and lowered blood pressure, and increased energy and mental focus. Join highly regarded instructor Ed Kehoe on Thursday mornings at 10:45 a.m. at the Vicksburg District Library for an invigorating, healthy Tai Chi experience. The cost is $5 per session, and everyone is welcome to attend when they can.

Yarn Arts Circle

As part of our adult-centered programming at the Vicksburg District Library, we are proud to present our bi-monthly Yarn Arts Circle. Join us with your knitting, crochet, cross stitch, or other yarn related art work while we enjoy tea and coffee. Art materials are not provided by the library. We plan to meet the first and third Wednesday evening of every month, so if you cannot join us this time, there is always next time. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Librarian Adrianne Schinkai at aschinkai@vicksburglibrary.org.

Book Club for Adults

Once a month we meet to discuss a particular book or work by an author and enjoy coffee, tea, and baked goods. Themes each month are wide and varied. Thoughts and opinions are greatly encouraged!
