Lower Southampton Library announces events

Enjoy art classes, virtual tours and more this month

The Township Library of Lower Southampton, 1983 Bridgetown Pike in Feasterville, announced the following events:

Chair Yoga with Elda: This virtual event takes place Tuesdays, Nov. 9 and 16, at noon via Zoom. Join for some gentle stretches from the comfort of your own home. Register online or by phone.

RPG: Join Tuesdays, Nov. 9 and 16, at 6:30 p.m. to go on adventures in Dungeons & Dragons. Once you have registered, the library will contact you with further details. All experience levels are welcome. Create a character or find pre-made characters for free online.

The Dogs of Chernobyl, 35 Years After the Nuclear Reactor Accident, My Story: On Tuesday, Nov. 9, at 6:30 p.m. join animal behaviorist Stephen Quandt for a presentation about the dogs that descended from the pet dogs left behind after the Chernobyl nuclear accident of 1986. It features his photos and videos from the abandoned towns of Pripyat and Chernobyl City in the zone around the plant where he participated in a spay/neuter and research campaign. This rare look at Chernobyl and the dogs (as well as some people) who continue to live there is at times scary, poignant and, in the end, hopeful. It’s a story of resilience, hope, life and even heroism in unexpected ways. Register online or by phone.
