The Bainbridge Public Library means many things to many people. Every Wednesday, yoga instructor Michael Szymanski, spends time there in between teaching a morning class at his studio in Kingston and another in the evening at Island Fitness.

“The library is quiet and so every noise becomes loud. I try to get beyond it, which adds to the practice. Here on Bainbridge people don’t look at you like it’s freaky to be meditating in the library.”
