Recs and Reads
By Anne McKay Garris
There's this movie about a man who has the ability to bring storybook characters to life when he reads aloud. But does he let loose Snow White's Prince Charming on the world. No, of course not, he sets free some nasty characters by mistake and his daughter, Meggie, joins forces with real and imaginary friends to set things right.
Sounds like fun to me. The story, entitled "Inkheart," is the September movie to be shown at the Clearwater Beach Library on September 14, at 10 a.m. Pop up some pop corn and invite a couple of friends to a fun outing at the library on Monday.
And do you remember Hoola Hooping? It's back at the Clearwater Beach Recreation Center with Angelique Renauv leading the class. You can rent a hoop on the spot, or buy one. Classes are at 11 a.m. to Noon on Thursdays. Cost is $10 with a recreation card.
Angelique will is back with her popular Zumba, high energy, cardio-dance class on Tuesdays from 11 a.m. to Noon. And yoga is available on Monday, Tuesdays and Thursday.
The Writer's Support Group is busily working on books of memoirs as Christmas presents for friends and family along with other projects. This group meets on the first and third Wednesday, at 1 p.m.
With residents returning from summer vacations and visitors beginning to trickle in, we need more volunteers to help out in the library. It's an easy and pleasant task in one of the nicest places on the Beach. Just drop by and sign up. Expect to be welcomed with open arms by staff and the other volunteers.
The Friends of the Clearwater Beach Recreation Center and Library are back from vacation and meeting this week to plan ways your library and rec center can serve you better. There's rumors something for skateboarders in the works and talk of Mah Jongg lessons. Got any other suggestions? If so, let us hear from you on our e-mail at email@example.com.
Just a heads up! Come September 26, hours at the Beach Library will go from morning to afternoon. They will be open Mondays through Fridays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. instead of mornings.
