Recurring Events for Adults

Adulting 101 | Last Tuesdays, 6:30 pm

Join us on the last Tuesday of the month at 6:30 pm to master the precarious art of adulting, starting January 29, 2019.

Resolutions Book Club| Every other month

There is something about the blank slate of the new year that welcomes us to become the version of ourselves that we have always dreamed we would be. Join us for Resolutions, a bi-monthly book club. Together we will share our goals and cheer each other on. This book club will also have a Facebook group page that you will be invited to join. We can chat about our progress and our setbacks between meetings. Questions about Resolutions? Contact Gina Gibbons at 314-963-8636 or ggibbons@bplmo.org.
