Taijifit has a new home at the Library!
Posted November 1, 2018
We're pleased to announce a new partnership with the Council on Aging. Bolton's Taijifit classes for adults are now held at the Library every Thursday morning from 10-10:45 a.m.
What's Taijifit? It's a cross between fitness, Tai Chi, and meditation. Taijifit benefits both mind and body, reduces stress, and improves balance and coordination.
The class is open to adults including seniors, and costs $3 per session payable to certified instructor Kristin Higgins. For more information contact Shirley at sassyj555(at)gmail.com or 978-779-2216.

Student admission is free.
Tickets are now available to the January 19 and 20 concerts. Titled "Transcription Gems," this concert features Parsifal--An Orchestral Quest (Wagner and deVlieger) and Flute Concerto (Aram Khachaturian; Carlos Aguilar, soloist).
Tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis. They cannot be reserved on our online pass reservation system. Limit two (2) tickets per person per show. To get yours, stop by the library or call 978-779-2839.
