Ottawa Public Library is delighted to announce the launch of Aging Well Together at the Library: Wellness Fridays programs, offered by the Library in partnership with City of Ottawa and funded by the City of Ottawa Older Adult Plan.
The Wellness Fridays programs are free. They start this June for Seniors Month and will continue through December! Programs are held on Zoom on Friday mornings, every week in English and twice a month in French. Participants may also join us by phone (via Zoom) if they do not have access to a computer or the internet. Each topic will have a two-part program. Themes for program topics will include drawing, movement (Tai chi, for example), writing and journaling, and puzzles. We have activity kits for each, including supplies and instructions. Registration on the Ottawa Public Library website is required; supplies and spaces are limited so register early to reserve your spot and your kit. We will email you a week before the program begins to arrange for the pickup location for your kit.
Registration is already open for June classes: Zen Drawing and Doodling, Sketching Nature, and Dessin de la nature (in French).
July workshops will be announced in a few weeks!
To register, you need an Ottawa Public Library card, free to Ottawa residents. You can get a temporary card online or call InfoService 613-580-2940.
