The Garrettsville Branch of the Portage County District Library is issuing an inquiry to determine the level of interest in young persons who might wish to take a Red Cross Babysitting Course, leading to certification covering basic child care and emergency procedures, with a handbook and CD-rom. An advanced certification is also available, which includes CPR certification( 2days required). There is a cost involved, which may be subsidized if the response is strong enough. A firm number of participants is needed for the course to be offered.
Any interested individuals should call the library for further details and/or to sign up for the course.
The Friends of the Library would also like to let the public know that—in addition to the ongoing book sale every day—April 8-15 will be the dates for the next big BOOK SALE. The storage facilities are chocked full and waiting to be emptied. There will be books of every size and description, for children, young people and adults, also other materials such as CD’s. Mark your calendars. Come to browse and buy. Volunteer to help out. And reflect upon this quote from Henry Ward Beecher : “Where is human nature so weak as in the bookstore?”
Children’s programs are a regular feature at the library and will be available in the summer. Inquire about them.
Remember to check out the new electronic sign outside the library for information on regular hours, holiday closings and special programs. Thanks to all who contributed to its purchase and to Isaac Russell who saw to its installation as part of his Eagle Scout project.
