Free Yoga Class Bow residents - February

As part of a facility rental agreement approved by the Library Trustees, Yoga NH (owned by Maureen Miller of Concord, NH), is pleased to offer FREE 1-hour yoga classes each month to Bow residents and library card holders!  These classes are suitable for all levels.

Sunday 2/24 from 9 am to 10 am

Classes will be held in the Library's Merrimack County Savings Bank Room in the Lower Level.  Because these classes are being held outside of library operating hours, participants will need to enter through the Lower Level door near the handicapped parking and ramp.  Registration is highly encouraged -  contact Lori Fisher, Library Director, at 224-7113 or lori@bakerfreelib.org. Thank you to Maureen Miller and Yoga NH for giving back to the Bow community as part of their paid use of our facilities for events and workshops!
