12 Book Discussion Kits in Diverse Voices

12 Book Discussion Kits in Diverse Voices

Mendon Public Library is pleased to announce the arrival of our new DIVERSE VOICES BOOK DISCUSSION KITS. The Rochester Regional Library Council and The Friends & Foundation of Rochester Public Library awarded a grant from the Harold Hacker Fund for the Advancement of Libraries to make the creation of these kits possible. Twelve Diverse Voices Book Discussion Kits were created. Each kit contains seven copies of a particular title and seven copies of a book discussion guide, conveniently circulated in a special tote bag. Titles were selected to represent diverse characters, authors, and topics. The intended audiences for the Diverse Voices kits are both established and new book groups, and anyone who may wish to host a single book discussion for their friends, family, coworkers, etc. The book kits have an extended 8-week loan period.

Thanks to a collaboration from the American Heart Association, UR Medicine, and the Monroe County Library System, you can learn to save lives with CPR from the comfort of your own home or classroom. Hands-Only CPR training kits are available to borrow at Mendon Public Library, and other select Monroe County Libraries. The unit includes a rubber torso, or manikin, to guide proper hand placement as well as compression rate and depth, and instructions. The Hand-Only CPR kits are available to be checked out and returned at any public library in Monroe County, just as with other library materials.
