2 summer programs for kids start this week at Central

Eco-Explorers: Nature in the City
4:00 p.m. on July 5th, 12th, 19th, & 26th and August 2nd & 9th


Each week for six weeks, members of Groundwork Somerville will introduce a nature topic and project that will enable kids to explore nature and wildlife in their neighborhood, including: birds, seeds/parts of a plant, flowers, trees, and insects, culminating with a walk to the Somerville Growing Center for the last session. Snacks will be provided.

Limited to 12 kids, ages 6-9, and their caregivers. Tickets will be handed out at the children’s desk one hour prior to beginning of session.

Yoga for Kids Ages 7-12 with Janine Duffy
4:00 p.m. on July 6th, 20th, & 27th and August 3rd, 10th, & 17th


Classes for children ages 7 through 12 consist of continuing to explore yoga as they practice more physically challenging postures on their way to building strength and balance. Children learn about partner yoga - a great source of fun and cooperative learning as kids grow older - and the basics of yoga philosophy are introduced with interactive learning about the chakras, mudras and doshas.

Each class ends with rest and meditation, which are important aspects of the class as well. Children are natural yogis; they have a blast exploring their new moves while building strong body and breath awareness, cooperative skills, and self-confidence.

Janine Duffy is certified to teach children’s yoga through Radiant Child Yoga. She teaches children’s yoga at Bow Street Yoga in Union Square.

Limited to 12 kids. Tickets will be distributed in the children’s room one hour prior to beginning of each session.

These free programs are funded by the Friends of the Library and all are welcome to attend!
