Scientists predict we may lose half the species on the planet by the end of the century. They believe we have entered the sixth major extinction event in Earth’s history. Number five took out the dinosaurs. This era is called the Anthropocene, or ‘Age of Man’, because the evidence shows that humanity has sparked this catastrophic loss. Join us to view the film and share in a discussion immediately following. Refreshments served. Scott Gray and Sonya Wulff will introduce the film and lead the discussion.

Dr. Schwartz will present “Congestive Heart Failure- What You Need to Know.” Congestive heart failure is becoming more prevalent, particularly as a person ages. Dr. Schwartz will present a discussion of the causes (pathophysiology) of congestive heart failure, symptomatology, and types of treatment available. It is hoped that the participants will gain a better understanding of the disease processes, and ultimately, how to live the best quality of life for those suffering from the disease. The presentation will be in an interactive format, with true/false questions being presented and discussed. A complimentary light lunch will be provided.
The Library will be closed on Friday, June 17th for a staff development day. Regular hours resume Saturday, June 18th.
