Help Support the Summer Reading Program
We are writing this letter to ask your support for our summer reading program at the Fiske Public Library. This summer Wrentham children and teens (ages 0-18) and their families are invited to participate in the 2021 Statewide Summer Library Program: Tails & Tales. We are asking library patrons, local businesses, banks & civic groups for donations for reading incentive prizes to encourage Wrentham families to read together.
We hope this will not only be good advertising for local merchants but also FUN for the children. We will be happy to post names of supporters at the library, on social media, our website and in our monthly newsletter.
YOUR SUPPORT IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!!! Thank you in advance for your support.

The next session of ZOOM YOGA being offered by Noreen Johnson will begin 6/23 and continue 6/30, 7/14, 7/21, 7/28 and 8/4.
Noreen offers a A Hatha based yoga for all levels. Participants move through a series of gentle poses designed to align breathing with muscle movement.
The class incorporates straps, blocks, light weights, and core ball to provide overall toning. These props are available to students and are optional to use during the class.
A relaxation and visualization complete the class allowing the student to be present in the moment created for them.
Cost is $48 for the six sessions.
A check to the Friends of the Fiske must be received before the date of the first class. The check can be sent to Fiske Library 110 Randall Road (note on the envelope YOGA) or dropped off in person at the Library. Be sure it is noted on the check it is for Yoga. Along with the check an email address needs to be given so the link for the Zoom Class can be sent before the session begins.
We are planning on starting Yoga in person in early September after this Zoom session!! Watch the website and email for details.
