Coffee Break

The only thing better than reading a good book is reading a good book and then talking about it with fellow book lovers. Every month we read a preselected book and then meet to discuss it. The Adult Services Librarian guides the discussion, but attendees are encouraged to bring up their own desired topics for the group to talk about, and we like to keep it loose and let the conversation flow naturally.

The book club reads primarily fiction titles, but we change things up with a non-fiction title from time to time. Click here to view to current reading list.

Step into your artistic journey at the Benbrook Library! Be introduced to the elements of art, examine historical or contemporary artists, and develop artistic skill. Paints, pencils, inks, or watercolors will be used by your “young Van Gogh” to create a masterpiece in every session.

Mindfulness

Mindfulness helps bring more awareness to the processes of our mind so that our bodies can be more present in the world. Join us each month to reflect and pause together in mindful ways. We will discover together how to experience life more fully, bring calm into our life situations, and move forward with purpose and focus.

Practicing mindfulness with a group helps to expand and accelerate your own growth and awareness. During each session, we will meditate together, journal together, and share together. By listening intently to others and sharing deeply from your own hearts, we can establish a lasting mindfulness routine together.

This is a loving and uplifting community and we would love to have you join us every 2nd Tuesday of each month at 6:30 PM.
