Literary lovers meet on the second Wednesday of each month at this Dutchess County library. Forty years ago, Anthony Peardew lost a keepsake from his fiancee on the day that she died. Since that day, he has taken on the title of "keeper of lost things" as he rescues lost objects and returns them to their owners. In October, follow Anthony in this heart- warming tale full of character, wit and wisdom. The Afternoon Book Group welcomes anyone to join and discuss this book. Pick up your copy at the library. Practice mindfulness with some help Join others at the Ethelbert B. Crawford Public Library, located at 479 Broadway in Monticello, each month to learn how to be mindful. Each month, Pamela Zaitchick, RN, teaches this fun class where people can learn how to use various forms of meditation to attain the benefits of being mindful. I am just beginning to approach the mindfulness lifestyle and appreciated that Nurse Zaitchick was willing to let group members stay an extra half hour after the regularly scheduled 90-minute meeting to chat and ask personal questions. This class helps members work on being present in the moment in a comforting and rewarding group setting. Explore mindfulness questions to build a practice that is just right for you. Although you are not required to attend every month, spacing in this program is limited. Join other mindful members in the RDN Community Room on October 22.
