Long-Term Care and You - rescheduled Wednesday, February 11 at 6:30 PM

Join us at the Roxbury Public Library for a long term care seminar presented by Craig Conlon from Bankers Life and Casualty Company.
Many middle-aged adults in the United States are entering or are in the “sandwich” generation. They are providing for their children and also taking care of their aging parents. What kind of planning can be done for this? What are a person’s or a family’s options in these situations? This seminar will provide much needed information for this growing problem in the United States. To register, call the library at 973-584-2400 ext. 501 or e-mail



How to Stop Smoking - Thursday, February 26 at 6:30PM

Join us on Thursday, February 26 at 6:30 PM, when certified hypnotherapist and author of the series “How to Fix Yourself”, Kathy Lindert, will look at where, when and why you smoke, then help you change how you think about smoking.  She won’t treat smoking as an addiction but as an unhealthy behaviour that can be changed. Change the way you think and you can change your behavior.  While some smoking cessation methods help you build up resistance and strength to overcome the desire for a cigarette, hypnosis is designed to eliminate the desire itself.

Registration is requested.  To register, call the library at 973-584-2400 ext. 501 or e-mail
