Cuba Library Kicks off First Week of Summer Reading


The Cuba Library starts its first week of Summer Reading next week with many fun events for patrons of all ages

From the Cuba Library,

On Tuesday June 27, Benjamin Berry teaches Brain Dance at 11:00 a.m. This seated exercise class is meant for adults, especially seniors, and is engaging, easy to follow, low impact, and fun. This project is made possible with funds from the Statewide Community Regrants Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Arts Council for Wyoming County. Please call the library to register for this event at 585-968-1668.

On that same day at 12:30, Benjamin Berry will teach Hooping for Everybody at Chamberlain Park. No matter what age, size, or ability, anyone can tap into the many benefits that the hula hoop has to offer. Learn about the history of the hula hoop and the modern hoop dance movement, as well as the physical, emotional, and social benefits of hoop dance. This program is funded through a grant from the Allegany County United Way.

Join us Wednesday, June 28 at 1 p.m. at the Cuba Library for Doug “the Bubble Man” Rougeux. Funny-man Doug Rougeux will be entertaining us with GIANT floating spheres (4-6 feet!), bubbles that bounce, and so much more! You and your family will not want to miss this! Everyone is welcome to attend this FREE event. This program is funded through a grant from the Allegany County United Way.
