Grundy Walking Club

Part of a Healthy Living Series

 

The simple act of walking can lead to improvements in your health. Join us for a mile-long stroll around the borough starting at the Grundy Library. Walkers are encouraged to wear comfortable clothes, shoes, and sunscreen.  As an incentive to further healthy living, participants who regularly take part in the walking club and healthy living series events are entered into a drawing for a free fitness tracker. For more information, or to register for the walking club, visit www.grundylibrary.org, or call 215.788.7891.

 

This program is offered by Margaret R. Grundy Memorial Library in support of the PA Forward | Pennsylvania Libraries initiative.  Libraries are key to powering progress and elevating the quality of life in PA by fueling the types of knowledge essential to success: Basic Literacy, Information Literacy, Civic and Social Literacy, Health Literacy, and Financial Literacy. 

 

 

 

Celebrating Diversity, Redefining Difference

 

What is diversity? How does it impact personal and social identity? Join Bucks County Community College’s, Max Probst, Associate Professor of Sociology, and Samantha Gross, Professor of History and Sociology, at the Margaret R. Grundy Memorial Library, 680 Radcliffe Street, in a moderated discussion on the meaning of diversity on Thursday, May 28, 2015 beginning at 6:30 pm. The public is encouraged to take time to recognize and celebrate our differences. To register for this free event, call the library at (215) 788-7891, or visit online at www.grundylibrary.org.

 

Celebrating Diversity, Redefining Difference is the lead-off event for the greater Grundy Library project to collect personal stories capturing community diversity, Everyone Has a Story to Tell – What’s Yours? For the story project, the public is invited to come in and interview friends or family members by appointment from June through August. Participants need not be a Bristol resident, and the interviews can be of any subject. These personal stories from the public will be recorded with copies saved to the Grundy Library Historical Collection and given to the interviewer and interviewee.  The entire project culminates with a Library exhibition during October that will feature some of the collected oral histories. To register a story recording session, or for more information, call (215) 788-7891 ext. 6.
