The Livermore Public Library continues its varied free offerings with a comedian and evening yoga, as well as drone courses for teens.
Nina G, author of "Stutterer Interrupted: The Comedian Who Almost Didn't Happen," will present an afternoon of comedy, stories and insights beginning at 2 p.m. this Sunday. She will talk about her journey to becoming the world's only female stuttering standup comedian, including growing up in an Italian-Catholic family, brushes with famous comedians and cringe-worthy interactions with people who didn't "get" stuttering.
The library also is presenting three evenings of easy yoga postures and mindfulness techniques that can help manage stress, at 8:30 p.m., Thursdays, Oct. 17, Nov. 21 and Dec. 19.
The free gentle yoga sessions, taught by local instructor Madhavi Nadendla, will include yoga asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation. No registration is required.
Evening Gentle Yoga is open to adults and teens only. All participants must fill out a waiver, and teens under 18 must have a waiver signed by a parent.
Participants should wear loose, comfortable clothing and come with an empty or light stomach. A mat will be provided to those who do not have one. For questions or more information, call Paul Sevilla at 373-5573.
The Livermore Library also is hosting two Drone Obstacle Course events for teens this fall, from 2-3:30 p.m. on Nov. 9 and from 6-7:30 p.m. on Dec. 18.
The courses will teach about drones and drone safety, and include a lesson on how to operate a small drone indoors. Teens will then have the opportunity to navigate an obstacle course.
Registration for the Drone Obstacles Courses is limited to the first 10 people to sign up for each date, with signups opening four weeks before the event. For more information, contact teen programming librarian Caitlyn Lung at 373-5576.
