Milton Public Library announces adult programming for December 2023
In December, the Milton Public Library is offering some fun programs for adults and families.
Most will be held in person in our Keys Community Room, but we also have some enjoyable virtual events which you may attend via Zoom.
On Saturday, December 2, at 2:00 p.m., there will be a fab concert to celebrate the holidays called “That’s Entertainment!” with the Mia Bellas of the Riverside Theatre. These 4 talented singing and dancing young ladies will help us all catch some holiday spirit – great for the whole family! Their repertoire will include both familiar holiday tunes and some great jazzy classics made popular through the years.
No signup is required to attend, so please join us with your family and friends for a very festive event! Then the Cookbook Club will hold their last meeting for the year on Sunday, December 3, at 2:00 p.m. in the Keys Community Room. Calling all cooks! Local chef Connie Spiros and Assistant Director Sara Truog invite you to attend this meeting, and members will prepare a tasty treat from the assigned book to bring to the library and share. The cookbook to refer to for this meeting is: Baking for the Holidays by Sarah Kieffer. For all the details, visit our website’s events list which you may find at www.miltonlibrary.org (use this link to register: https://tinyurl.com/526umk7r). Bon Appetit!
The MA Library Collaborative’s Online 50+ Job Seekers Group will meet 4 times in December, and there will be 2 career topics discussed virtually. On Wednesday, December 6 at 9:30 a.m. and then again on December 13 at 2:00 p.m., you can join a group of like-minded people for a talk about “Networking 2.0.”
Then on Wednesday, December 20, there will be 2 more meetings to discuss the topic: “Creating a Marketing Plan & Brief” – the first session will start at 9:30 a.m. and the second will begin at 6:00 p.m.
This will be the final career topic presented in 2023, but we hope the series will continue in the New Year (more details will soon be available about this on our website). Each bi-weekly job search meeting is facilitated by Deborah Hope, an experienced executive career coach, and these sessions have been happening all year. In order to register to receive the Zoom link for any of the remaining meetings, please visit our website and search for the dates mentioned (as one does have to register for each individual discussion in advance).
Our free Wednesday monthly movies continue on December 6, starting at 6:30 p.m., with the comical film called “80 for Brady.” It stars Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Rita Moreno, and Sally Field, and this is the story of a group of friends who are dedicated football fans. After decades of dreaming, a quartet of older women finally decide to make a pilgrimage to the Super Bowl for the once-in-a-lifetime chance to meet their favorite player, noteworthy NFL mainstay Tom Brady. Along the way, a series of hijinks ensue! This is such a fun movie and a really great cast. No sign up is required to attend, the running time is 98 minutes, and the film is rated PG-13 for some suggestive references/drug content/brief strong language (so is not appropriate for children). We hope to see you there, and snacks are encouraged (but not provided).
The Library Knitting Group will have their last yearly meeting on Thursday, December 7, at 7:00 p.m. held in the lower level Conference Room. This informal knitting group offers an opportunity for people to get together, bring a project to work on, and have friends nearby to ask questions when they need help. The members are not able to teach beginners, but anyone can just drop in and work on their own project. There is no advance signup required, although if you would like to get on the organizer’s Email reminder list, send a message to [email protected] and she will make sure you are added.
On Tuesday, December 12, from 6:30 until 8:00 p.m., our talented chef Connie Spiros will give a “Hearty Recipes” cooking demo via Zoom for all to enjoy. She will share some great recipes and her process to create a few yummy dishes in this fun program, well suited for colder weather. This demo will be offered virtually and so to participate and receive the Zoom link, go to www.miltonlibrary.org and click on “events” from the main page to find the date to register. You can also read there more details about the recipes that Connie will be making, as they become available. For all those budding cooks out there, this program will give us all some inspiration for new holiday recipes to try!
And finally, our last December event for adults will be a free Adult Yoga class with instructor Marianne Zullas, to be held on Saturday, December 16, starting at 11:00 a.m. This will be a one-hour gentle vinyasa flow yoga class which is designed to create movement and space in the body. Students will practice breathing techniques, asanas (yoga poses), and they will also be introduced to exercises that will open some of the meridian pathways to create a better flow of energy. This class is for ages 13 and up, and space is limited, so please register in advance on our website. You will receive one email reminder beforehand, and we encourage you to join Marianne for some exercise and company!
This program is kindly sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library and are free and open to all. In person events will be held in the Keys Community Room unless otherwise specified, and the Library is located at 476 Canton Avenue, Milton.
