June 20th: Responding to Opioid Overdose

Posted by gtedescoblair on

Please join us for this important training program on June 20th from 6-7:30

Naloxone has been fundamental in the efforts to decrease rates of fatal overdoses. This training teaches first responders, likely opioid overdose witnesses and community members to understand, recognize, respond to and reverse suspected opioid overdoses using naloxone. Participants will learn ways to obtain free or low-cost naloxone for personal use. This training is modeled after the evidence-based SAMHSA Opioid Overdose Prevention Toolkit.
Training objectives include:
• to increase understanding and awareness of fatal overdoses related to opioids and the impact within the community
• to identify risk factors for an overdose
• to be able to recognize a suspected overdose
• to be able to identify the five essential steps for first responders as outlined in the SAMHSA Opioid Overdose Prevention Toolkit in the event of an overdose
• to be able to correctly use naloxone to save lives
• to understand how to access the Naloxone Co-payment Assistance Program (NCAP) to obtain free or low-cost naloxone.

Thank you for your vote!

Posted by mcorreia on

Thank you to everyone who came out on Tuesday to vote for the school district budget, the library’s funding proposition and to elect trustees for the school board and the library board. The library’s funding proposition passed 679 to 153 – that’s 82% “Yes” votes. Thank you for your support.

And congratulations to Andrea Jacoby and Tyler Kindron, who were elected for the first time to the library’s board of trustees, and Deb Barry and Chris Mizro, who were re-elected. Thank you to them and to the entire board for their time and effort spent in support of the library.

Puzzle Exchange

Posted by mcorreia on

NEW at the library, at the request of a community member, we have added a jigsaw puzzle exchange.

Bring in a puzzle from home and trade it with one here.  Or just borrow one and bring it back when you’re done with it.

Donations of puzzles is greatly appreciated — just drop them off on the puzzle exchange shelves, which can be found near the new books in the upstairs of the library.

Cookbook Club

Posted by mcorreia on

Join us on the first Monday of each month at 1:00pm as we explore a new category of food and try new recipes.

Borrow a cookbook (optional) and try a new recipe at home.  Then bring the food you made and the recipe to the library to share and talk about your experience cooking the recipe.  If possible, please bring your recipe in ahead of time so we can make copies for everyone.  We will make and share a different kind of food each month.  Check the library’s online calendar for more information and to sign up.
