Heart-to-Heart at the Library featuring "The Office"

Community Room
Saturday, Feb 8, 12:00pm to 4:00pm

Join us for another event in the Heart-to-Heart at the Library series on Saturday, February 8th, from 1:00 - 2:30 pm at the Hawthorne Library. We'll be watching several episodes of "The Office" (American version.)

These events allow space for open conversations about healthy relationships, communication, boundaries, and so much more. We will be watching movies or TV shows, with light snacks included. Afterwards, we will discuss and critique the relationships within the films or shows. Our events are open to any adult (18+) with intellectual/developmental disabilities, and we encourage independence for attendees who do not require support staff/helpers. We hope to see you there!
