Red Feather Lakes Community Library update for April

Red Feather Mountain Library District – the parent organization of Red Feather Lakes Community Library – will be conducting a public hearing on the library’s Internet Safety Policy for Adults and Minors at the Board of Trustees meeting April 4 at 9:30 a.m. in the library’s Stenzel Community Room. The Internet offers both promise and peril. We will discuss safety issues in relation to the library’s current Internet policy, which is unchanged this year. Interested individuals are encouraged to attend.

Join us at the library for Baby Time (weekly, Thursday from 10:30 – 10:50am), a program for parents and their 6- to 24-month-old babies. Stressing early literacy, as well as post-activity socialization for parents, we provide music, rhymes, books and fun. No sign-up necessary.

The library will once again be co-sponsoring and co-hosting the annual 9Health Fair, this year on May 5 from 7 a.m. until noon. This is a wonderful opportunity to participate in low-cost and free health screenings. The 9Health Fair will be held at three sites: RFL Community Library, 71 Fire House Lane; RFLV Fire Department’s Ambulance Bay; and RFL Property Owners Association, 58 Fire House Lane. Due to limited parking, please follow parking instructions from volunteer traffic monitors, and then register for 9Health Fair at POA building.

9Health Fair provides low-cost blood tests, including blood chemistry, blood count, prostate specific antigen (PSA), and Vitamin D. New this year is Hemoglobin A1c blood screening, which measures average blood sugar control for past two to three months. Please do not eat 12 hours before having blood drawn (diabetics should not fast). Please DO drink plenty of water and take your prescribed medications. Participants must be 18 years of age and older. Free health screenings offered at RFL Library include vision, oral/dental, lung function, and much more.

All participants must start first at POA building for registration and blood pressure check. Blood screenings will be offered at RFLVFD Ambulance Bay with cashier station in the Stenzel Meeting Room at Red Feather Lakes Community Library.

Non-medical and medical volunteers are also needed. Please contact Judy at 970-881-2159 if you would like to help.
