We have all heard about ways to go green; turning off the faucet while brushing our teeth, recycling plastic bottles and newspapers, composting, and numerous other ways. One way of helping the environment to stay green is by taking a look at some of the things we do when we travel. Instead of having clean towels every day, use the same towels throughout your stay at the hotel. If you take the amount of water and electricity it takes to rewash those towels, it would amount to tons of water and thousands of watts of electricity. Take a look at some of ideas and see what changes you can make to help our planet be healthy for us and for the next generation.
Looking for something new and fun for you and your child to do at the Library?
Maybe you’d like to slip in a little something educational too?
Why not come down to Children’s and Parents’ Services and play one of our Money for Life games together with you child? Not only will you have some family fun but you will also learn about spending, sharing and saving money and your child will begin to learn basic financial principals.
We have many games and activities for children of varied ages available at the CAPS Desk with a Library card. We will hold your Library card while you have some fun playing one of our board games during your visit at the Library.
Sadly, slavery is not an issue of the past. The truth is that people are bought and sold every day all around the world. While we are lucky enough to have voices, many men, women and children around the globe have no advocates, no rights. Today, I’d like to support National Human Trafficking Awareness by providing some facts, books and websites you can reference. As blessed as we are, we should always remember those who are less fortunate. From the food that we eat to the clothes that we wear to the time we spend, we can all make a difference in the fight against modern day slavery.
