The public is welcome to join us for the following program at the McConnell Library:

Self Care and Wellness

Wednesday, Feb. 21st   7 PM

McConnell Library (Sydney)

Self-care is the foundation of a healthy mind and body, and yet in this fast moving world it’s not a priority and often comes after work, money, relationships, etc.

Learn practical self-care strategies that can be modified depending on the individual; strategies that will help prevent depression, anxiety and burnout.

Presenter: Harman Singh (M.A., R. Psych.)

Everyone welcome.

February is Psychology Month

This program is offered through the Association of Psychologists of NS (APNS)

Celebrate African Heritage Month through Stories (-)

The public is welcome to join us for the following program at the McConnell Library:
   
"Celebrate African Heritage Month through Stories"

Thursday, Feb. 22nd at 7:00 PM
McConnell Library (Sydney) 
   
The McConnell Library is pleased to host playwright and storyteller David Woods alongside local author and storyteller
Wanda Robson for an evening of stories and experiences of African Nova Scotian’s around the time of the Halifax Explosion.
 
In celebration of African Heritage Month, Woods has created a 60-minute photo and storytelling
presentation from his new play, Extraordinary Acts. Extraordinary Acts marks the first broad investigation
of African Nova Scotian experiences during the time of the Halifax Explosion.
 
Robson’s storytelling has brought national recognition and honour to her sister, Viola Desmond,
now famous for her personal actions to fight racism and discrimination in a Nova Scotia theatre in 1946.
Wanda wrote the book Sister to Courage to document Viola’s inspiring story.
Robson’s family history touches on the Halifax Explosion also, as another sister Emily Clyke (103 years) of Montreal
is one of the last living survivors of the Explosion.
 
Everyone is welcome.
 
This program is presented in partnership with The Black Artists Network of Nova Scotia (BANNS).  February is African Heritage Month.
