Creative Movement

The Mystic & Noank Library will host Creative Movement Classes, presented by the Eastern Connecticut Ballet, May 10 from 4 to 5 p.m., in the Ames Room. These 45-minute classes are an introduction to creative movement for young ones. We will read a book to introduce a theme, followed by 35 minutes of movement! Due to space constraints, registration is required. The program is free and open to the public.

The topic for the first class is Flowers and Insects. The second class topic is Vacation.

SCORE Workshop

Small business owners wear multiple hats and play several roles in running their business. Juggling the demands of tasks and time can be frustrating and stressful. It’s a challenge when you are jumping around your tasks, meetings, running the business and handling interruptions.

In this workshop, May 15 from 6 to 7:30 p.m., SCORE mentor Eric Munro will look at the way we use the hours in a day to become more productive and manage time better. It’s not the number of hours, it’s the use we get out of them. We will uncover several skills that can improve productivity.

Registration is required for this event; reserve a seat at https://sect.score.org/content/take-workshop-141.

Volunteer Day

Our semi-annual outdoor Volunteer Day at the Library is here! Bring your rakes, work gloves, and other yardwork tools to help us tidy up around the Mystic & Noank Library (MNL) grounds, May 18 from 9 a.m. to noon. The MNL needs help weeding, clearing out and pruning the grounds for the start of spring. Thank you for volunteering your time to help beautify the lovely building and grounds. Coffee and donuts will be provided!

If you are interested in volunteering, register at www.mysticnoanklibrary.org or sign up at the front desk.

Girls Who Code

Girls Who Code, a national STEM-based movement aimed at young women, is on a mission to close the gender gap in technology and to change the image of what a programmer looks likes and does.

This May, the Mystic & Noank Library will host its first Girls Who Code event in the Children's Room for girls ages 10 and up who are intrigued by the world of coding, May 22 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. In this exciting new workshop, our young female attendees will learn new programming languages and acquire invaluable life skills while creating a fun technology project all their own!

Registration is required for this program; sign up via www.mysticnoank.ibrary.org or call (860) 536-7721 for assistance.

Want to try an instrument that is fun and easy to play? Join Julie Stepanek as she shows the fundamentals of ukulele playing, May 23 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the Ames Room. You'll learn how to tune, strum and read chords. After a short lesson, you'll be able to play some fun and easy songs.

No experience is necessary. Bring your own uke or borrow one of Julie's. This is an all ages workshop, but best for those ages 8 and up.

Registration is required for this program.
