Qigong With Nancy Osley, Instructor
Tuesday, April 7 - 9:30am | Facebook


The Library building may be closed, but we are doing our best to continue to serve our community in several ways.

One way is to offer you the chance to participate in Qigong Class through our Facebook page. Nancy will be leading you in class as she has been doing since 2018.

The class will be a video saved on our Facebook page so you can replay it. 

Qigong is a moving meditation that is simple, easy to learn, and can be done by everyone, at any age and fitness level.
Just mirror the movements of the instructor and reduce tension, improve breathing, and increase flexibility.

Thanks to Nancy for her willingness to try this and to her commitment to this group. She recently said in an email: "I am ready to continue teaching. It is a wellness program and the reduction of stress is very important for our immune system."

Photography Group - Light Painting
Monday, April 20 - 6:00pm


Light painting results when a handheld light source—usually a flashlight— is used in a dark room or outdoors at night to illuminate a subject.

When you make a light painting, your camera is on a tripod with its shutter open for a timed exposure while you illuminate parts of the subject with the light.

Here is a tutorial on Learning About Your Camera with Light Painting Photography.

Try it at home, then send your photographs to jhenze@deforestlibrary.org by April 20. A few will be posted on Facebook with the permission of the photographers.
