Write the next chapter of your wellness journey at the Library!

We are thrilled to invite you to discover a world of wellness right in your community. We’ve planned a celebration of health, mindfulness, and self-discovery hosted in the heart of our community — your neighborhood Library. Join us for a evening filled with rejuvenating activities, an enlightening panel of local wellness experts, and a community of like-minded individuals dedicated to nurturing good health.

Your well-being is at the heart of our event, and we can’t wait to share this enriching experience with you at the Library. We will also be sharing the progress on the new Main Library and how this new flagship will be transformative to our Library system and continue to help you write future chapters in The Book of You.

The ticket price includes light appetizers and adult beverages as well as some souvenirs for your wellness journey.
