Bettyann Mullen, a certified Zentangle® instruction offers this introduction to Zentangle, an easy to learn and relaxing art form. You'll learn to create beautiful art with repetitive patterns. With Zentangle, anyone can create beautiful images from repetitive patterns. This method is easy to do. And even though it is a specified series of steps, it results in a creative expression that transcends its own rules. Even if you have never drawn a line, you can pick up a pen and make a beautiful piece of art the very first time. Are you convinced you are not " creative, artistic, or talented"? You will be amazed and surprised to see what you can create. Do you already have artistic tendencies? Zentangle is a great creativity 'kick start' to your work.

Zentangle supplies will be on sale in Heberton Hall between noon and 12:45 p.m.

The Keene Public Library hosts a monthly free family dance for children and adults of all ages and abilities. Family Dances started at the Keene Public Library in the summer of 2003. Now the dances are held the first Friday of each month from November through May. Over the years, the series has become an important library program that helps to develop early literacy skills and is fun too. Folk dancing helps to encourage the basic concepts of rhythm, repetition, sequencing, patterning, predictability, anticipation, musical cues, auditory discrimination, and counting. These are all important early learning skills. Traditional dance also is a great way to introduce children to the world's rich diversity, to teach the enjoyment of dance, music, and rhythm and to begin a livelong habit of the social enjoyment and physical activity of dancing.

All Family Dances are sponsored by the Friends of the Keene Public Library and the Trustees of the Keene Public Library Endowment Fund.

Each week, we'll provide a different variety of games for you to play; we welcome you to bring in your own games to share with the group.
