Lay out a mat on the Central Library’s Rooftop Terrace. Yoga is back!
The Library resumes its monthly series of open-air yoga sessions led by Lauren Leduc of Kansas City’s Karma Tribe Yoga, voted by readers of The Pitch as the city’s best yoga studio of 2017. The one-hour class is suitable for all skill levels.
Participants are asked to bring their own mats and water. Wind down afterward by browsing for a book or taking in the Central Library sights. Classes continue the second Monday of every month through October.
Co-presented by the Diebold family.
6:00 pm to 7:00 pm
Are you a teenager who loves to read and has questions about sex, relationships, your body, and more? Come join us for a new book group, Sex Talk and Books, at the Plaza Library. This session we are reading “Boy Meets Boy” by David Levithan. This book is about teens who have crushes, lose and gain important friendships, and who are brave enough to stand up for what they care about. This group will meet bi-weekly for eight weeks to discuss the interesting lives of these characters and to learn more about sexuality and the many complex relationships we have in our lives. Each participant will receive a free book and journal. Dinner and snacks will be provided.
6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
