Community Event
Lower Richland High School | 2615 Lower Richland Blvd
Join Richland Library at Lower Richland High School for a day of body movement for all. No jumping or running, just movement. 11 a.m. - 12 p.m. Yoga instructor Morgan Ryan will lead a basic yoga class. Bring your yoga mat if you have one. 12 - 1 p.m. James Anderson, fitness specialist from the Lourie Center, will guide you in chair aerobics so that you gain exercise without jumping and running. Richland Library is committed to extending our reach into the Lower Richland and Hopkins communities. In June 2016, we began piloting a partnership with Lower Richland High School that allows us to open the school’s media center as a public library several days per week during the summer. The temporary location features a collection of popular library materials ranging from books to DVDs, as well as access to computers and various digital resources.
