Open Play: Games @ Your Library

Place: Keene Public Library, Heberton Hall, Keene, NH
Price: Free
Ages: All

Repeats weekly. Open Play is just that. It is all gaming!  And, gaming of any kind; whether it is board games, card games, video games, big games, role-playing games, or any other kind of game you can imagine, we'll play it.  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.  Throughout the series, we will have a number of gaming tournaments, so keep your eyes peeled and your ears open, because you might be our next grand champion gamer!
Summer Tango

Time: 6:30 pm-9:00 pm
Place: Keene Public Library, Heberton Hall, Keene, NH
Price: Free
Ages: Older

Repeats weekly. Come out to the library and learn the Argentine Tango with local instructor Judith Schwartz.
In this series, students will be introduced to basic concepts of Argentine Tango, including posture & alignment, techniques of walking, lead & follow, connection and partnership, fundamental tango vocabulary, improvisation, history of the dance and music, and social dance etiquette here and abroad.
Each week, the combined class and practice sessions will focus on introducing and reviewing fundamental skills such as 'lead and follow,” connecting to your partner and to the music, navigating on the dance floor, and building vocabulary for your own personal 'tango conversation.'  There will be additional practice time for all dancers at the end of the evening.
No experience in any dance form is necessary for beginners, and no partner is needed.  Come alone, or bring your friends. Please wear comfortable clothes and clean dance shoes or heavy socks for easy pivoting on the floor.
Each evening will be structured wtih warm ups, a lesson, and practice.
6:30 warm up
7:00 - 8:30 lesson
8:30 - 9:00 practice

Ages: All

Repeats weekly. For many decades, artists living in New England have come together in small social groups to paint and enjoy the art world. The level of ability is wide ranging and includes virtually all media, oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastels and more. The painting groups generally paint together in church basements, Town Halls, and lodge halls throughout the rural communities. The groups vary in size and an average group size might be about twenty artists with seven to twelve artists painting together on a given day. Some group members are just starting out but others have been painting for decades. Some are self-taught and some have a formal art education.
