Pajama Drive results
Posted March 21, 2019
Every year, public libraries statewide partner with the Boston Bruins to collect new pajamas for kids in need. This year, the libraries collected 13,022 pair of pajamas--and 64 of those were from Bolton. Every pair of PJs collected will go to a child in need (through DCF), and every pair makes a difference in a young person's security, warmth, and sleep.
From the library community and everyone at Bolton Public Library: THANK YOU to the residents of Bolton (particularly our super donor who brought in half of our total!!) for your generosity. We'll collect again early next year. Watch this space for notices.
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.
