|Kathy Harrison: Disaster Preparedness & Community|
Disaster Preparedness and Community
a presentation by
Wed. December 3, at 6:30 PM.
Author Kathy Harrison discusses disaster preparedness and the role of community. Kathy was featured in the first season of national Geographic’s hit series Doomsday Preppers and is the author of Just In Case: How to Be Self-Sufficient When the Unexpected Happens.
But Kathy isn't crawling under a rock or stockpiling weapons, she’s reskilling and building community around her home. Here’s some words from the National Geographic producer Topaz Azides: "The key word at the Harrisons is self-reliance. They grow a lot of their own food and can just about everything. Kathy, as humble as she is, is pretty much a master canner. Her husband Bruce, who is even humbler, can pretty much make anything out of wood. You want it, he'll build it. They make for a dynamic power prepper duo.”
Join us for this important presentation by one of the Valley's masters of self-reliance.

The LEGO Club meets Saturdays in the Children’s Activities Room from 10:30 to 11:30 AM. The program allows children to come and explore the wonderful world of LEGOs with other interested children. A different theme is picked each session, and kids can build on that theme or build a creation of their own. After each club meeting, kids can put their LEGO creations on display at the Library for all to see until the next club. This program is designed for elementary school children but is open to kids of all ages.
Children may bring LEGOs from home.
