Join us on February 22nd at 11AM for the Mysterious World of Insects! Although insects inhabit the same planet as us, as a unique species they are faced with unique challenges. A closer look into our own backyards will reveal the mysterious world of insects!
This program for children ages 6+ is presented by Blake Dinius, Entomologist for Plymouth County. Please register here or call the library at 781-585-0517.
Ticks carry the potential to transmit many harmful diseases. In Plymouth County, the rate of Lyme disease infection is 13x higher than the national average and rapidly climbing. Some even estimate that Lyme disease infection could be as high as 130x the reported national average. The threat is severe and the chances of encountering a tick in Plymouth County are high so when it comes to protecting ourselves, we cannot afford to lose a single fight since one bite can change a life. Applying the correct protection methods is critical.
Blake Dinius, Plymouth County Entomologist-Educator, will lead the program and will review the basic biology of ticks and dispel many commonly held myths. Most importantly, he will cover proven protection measures. With the right knowledge and tools, all tick-borne diseases are preventable. Mr. Dinius has a B.S. in Biology from the University of Massachusetts Boston and has several years of professional experience in insect research.
This program will take place at the Kingston Council on Aging located at 30 Evergreen Street on March 5 at 6:30 PM and is sponsored by the Kingston Public Library in cooperation with Kingston Recreation Department and the Kingston Health Department.
The program is free, but registration is requested. To register online click here. For more information visit the library’s online calendar at www.KingstonPublicLibrary.org, or call the Library at 781-585-0517.
According to a recent National Academies of Science study, trauma is the leading cause of death for Americans under age 46. Life-threatening emergencies can happen fast and emergency responders aren’t always nearby. You may be able to save a life by taking simple actions immediately, because those nearest to someone with life-threatening injuries are best positioned to provide first care.
Colonel David W. Gavigan of the Bristol County Sheriff’s Office will give a free course in the basic skills of keeping people with life-threatening injuries alive until professional help arrives, on Wednesday, February 21 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM at the Kingston Public Library. This course is for all experience levels and offers hands-on training. Course topics will include: Understanding how you make a difference in the chain of survival; Calling 911; Staying safe; Stop the bleeding; Position the injured; and Providing comfort.
