Program series at Derby library to focus on women

  DERBY -The Derby Public Library has begun a new program series to be held at 6:30 p.m. on the

first Monday of each month: Just for Women.

The next session will be held Feb. 3.

These sessions offer women an informal opportunity to come together to learn how to enhance the quality of their lifestyle, share challenges and joys with other women, provide support to one another, spend time with old friends, and make new friends.

The group focuses on one topic per meeting for discussion; examples of some topics are: healthy sleep habits, relationships, relaxation methods, having fun/social outlets, community connections,

communication, how social pressures impact our daily life, etc.

The series is facilitated by Valley resident Joan Joyce, a licensed professional counselor in the State of Connecticut, as well as a Nationally Certified Counselor, and a Certified Senior Advisor

Scientific studies show that an integral component of achieving and maintaining optimal health and well being includes having a strong social support network in your life.
All women, ages 18 and over, are invited to join this new and vital group.

Registration is requested; walk-ins are also welcome.

For information, stop by the Library at 313 Elizabeth St., call 203-736-1482 or visit

This is a press release from Cathy Williams, Director, Derby Public Library.
