Hello Cambridge Community!

Although this summer will be different because of the public health emergency, the return of warm weather and sunshine is something to celebrate. The Library has been busy planning programs and services for you to enjoy during the summer months, as well as planning for a safe phased reopening. Here are some upcoming highlights:

Children and their grownups are invited to join our Virtual Family Story Time on Thursdays at 11 a.m. This free program includes songs, stories, rhymes and FUN! Registration is required.

We invite you to our Community Flow Yoga program which takes place every Sunday in June – beginning on June 7 at 10 a.m. The instructor is Rachael Junard, a Boston based wellness educator and yoga instructor. This community class is for all levels. It centers on stretching the body and grounding the mind, while incorporating simple breathwork. Registration is required.

Our Classical Music in Quarantine program will take place on Saturday, June 13, from 11 a.m.-12 p.m. Musician Deberly Kauffman will play a mostly-Bach program, featuring songs for solo viola. The program is designed to be uplifting, restoring, and introspective. Registration is required.
