June 2022 Newsletter

SUMMER READING ON BEANSTACK If you don’t have time to come in to the library, you can still participate in our Summer Reading Program. Log in to Beanstack and join the Oceans of Possibilities: Adult Summer Reading Challenge. There are also Beanstack Challenges for Children and Teens. You can earn tickets for the Grand Prize Drawing in almost the same way. Track the number of hours you read, write brief book reviews, complete Library Wordle, and participate in the Photo Contest. ADULT COMMUNITY OUTREACH TOPICS Whether you attended the program on May 26 or not, be sure to come to this first informational meeting Tuesday, June 28 at 10:00 AM in the McClean Room. The topic for this month’s program is “Hospice and Palliative Services” presented by Kelly Guerrero, the Hospice Director with Ohio Living. Next month’s meeting in the series is 10:00 AM Thursday, July 7; the topic will be Medicare 101 presented by Pat D. Gerber, Independent Insurance Agent, Certified Medicare Specialist. And if you do not make it to that presentation, there is a separate Medicare introduction (not from this program series) that will be given by Holly Frische on Tuesday, July 12 at 1:00 PM. If you have questions, please contact Linda Gutierrez, Business Development Liaison with Ohio Living Hospice and Palliative Care, at 419-327-7832. LIBRARY WORDLE Each Monday, beginning June 6, a link will be provided to take you to that week’s Wordle to solve. The words will be 5 letters and library-related.
