Spring Skillbuilders Series

Anxiety and stress can interfere with memory and the familiar, making even the easiest things harder to navigate. Help is here! Our Outreach Coordinator, Pattie, organizes a series of classes each year to help get folks back on track after a significant life change.

Due to an unexpected circumstance, the final program in this session will be MAY 9th.  The series will resume on September 12th at 10:00am at the Smith Center.

Being Mortal: Film, Discussion, and Interactive Wall

If you thought you were dying, what would matter most?

Join us Thursday, Nov 10 at 6:30 PM in the Auditorium for a screening of Atul Gawande’s story of experiences of death and dying from the perspective of a healer and his patients.

Based on his book, Being Mortal, we invite our community to have critical conversations about end of life care. Our discussion will be led by local providers and healers hoping to provide context for early decision making.

Offered in partnership with Lawrence Memorial Hospital. More information: Gwen GeigerWolfe


Before I Die Interactive Exhibit
NOV 1–30, 2016 | Library Atrium
What is important to you? Come reflect on your life and share personal aspirations on our community “bucket list” in the Atrium.

After losing someone she loved and experiencing deep depression, artist Candy Chang created an interactive wall on an abandoned house in her neighborhood to create an anonymous place to help restore perspective and share intimately with neighbors while remaining an introvert.

What started as a personal outlet has led to an international experience. Walls have appeared all over the world and now we have one right here in Lawrence. It will be documented and added to the project. More information, photos, and stories can be found at the website.

Offered in partnership with Midland Care and Visiting Nurses Association.
