Nov Dec Newsletter

November & December 2019 ‘Tis the season for spreading kindness and holiday cheer. The season of giving kicks off with World Kindness Day on November 13th. Senior adults 55 and over are invited to a special Coffee Club on November 11th for an enlightening discussion on ways to spread kindness. Amidst the hustle and bustle of holiday events and gatherings, let’s remember to take time to share the spirit of kindness with those around us. Director’s Corner The hustle and the bustle of the holidays are upon us. Remember to take time for yourself. None of us are at our best when we meet ourselves coming and going. It is easy to get lost in to-do-lists and forget the simple acts of kindness that truly matter. December 12 th Holiday Chi and Tea will be offered for adults to reconnect with their inner peace. Participants will enjoy the calming motions of Chi to be followed by a cup of tea in the relaxing setting the library has to offer. Youth ages 3-12 are invited to Holiday Lights on December 10 th to spark the season’s cheer. The library’s annual open house is scheduled for November 22 nd (Coshocton) and December 7 (West Lafayette). Come unwind with the community parade, refreshments, and crafts. Most importantly, remember “kindness is the gift everyone can afford to give” (unknown). Happy Holidays, Jennifer Austin, Director “As we celebrate World Kindness Day, I invite you to look for ways to make kindness the norm in your daily life. World Kindness Day is a great day to begin building a new routine which means including intentional moments of kindness, laughter and delight. It also means taking a moment to enjoy and recognize when those things are happening. Kindness starts with one. One smile. One compliment. One cup of coffee. One conversation. Let’s lift the fog and make kindness the norm.” Have a wonderful holiday season from the Coshocton Public Library!
