TED talks are back! Join host Eugene Ritchie in discussion after viewing two TED talk speakers each session who will speak on a specific topic. Each program consists of diverse speakers with short presentations of 10 and 21 minutes long. Each talk will be followed by light refreshment.

The topics and speakers for November are:

Community Health: The Opioid Crisis

Travis Rieder - "The Agony of Opioid Withdrawal and What Doctors Should Tell Patients"
The United States accounts for five percent of the world's population but consumes almost 70 percent of the total global opioid supply, creating an epidemic that has resulted in tens of thousands of deaths each year. How did we get here, and what can we do about it? In this personal talk, Travis Rieder recounts the painful, often-hidden struggle of opioid withdrawal and reveals how doctors who are quick to prescribe (and overprescribe) opioids aren't equipped with the tools to eventually get people off the meds.

Chera Kowalski - "The Critical Role Libraries Play in the Opioid Crisis"
Public libraries have always been about more than just books, and their mission of community support has taken on new urgency during the current opioid epidemic. After witnessing overdoses at her library in Philadelphia, Chera Kowalski learned how to administer naloxone, a drug that reverses the effects of narcotics, and she's put it to use to save patrons' lives. In this personal talk, she shares the day-to-day reality of life on the frontline of the opioid crisis and advocates for each of us to find new ways to keep our communities safe and healthy.

Registration is required - please register on our online calendar here or call 914-232-5717.

10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Due to the popularity of this workshop, leader Linda Spear has added a third class! If there is a book in you, a memoir, a fictional recounting of a time in your life or an historical tome, there is no greater time to preserve your written words in a class with other students who are exploring an idea, a work in progress, or a chapter in their life. Bring your ideas, pen and paper (or laptop) so that within a few short weeks you will have developed the strategies to become a lifelong writer. People of all skill levels are welcome. Space is limited for this popular class, so register early! Please register on our online calendar here or call 9141-232-5717.

Our programs are funded by the Friends of the Somers Library through your donations. Thanks for your support!

Ages 10 to adult.

Everyone is creative in some way, whether it is planning an exquisite meal, knitting a gorgeous scarf, painting a masterpiece, or crafting a handmade card. Come together and share a moment with other creative individuals. Bring your own project to work on or open one of the library’s Art Boxes for an easy, self-directed project. Work in family groups or with a group of friends. This is a great opportunity for families to spend some quality time together. We ask that school age children come with an adult. Attend every week or periodically when available. There are plenty of supplies on hand on the Art Cart as well as some coloring books in case you want a calm, meditative task. All are encouraged to share their work in a fun, supportive atmosphere.

Facilitated by Jen Armbruster and Debbie Rizzo, one or both of whom will be available each week to answer questions, provide suggestions, offer feedback, or organize an exhibition of the work in a Library display case.

For questions, you can email the library at keelerlibrary@wlsmail.org or call at 914-669-5161. You can also email Jen at jarmbruster1@optimum.net or Debbie at drizzo195@gmail.com with questions.

Susan Oliverio (aka Susan Grace) has never been a professional artist. Her time dedicated to long hours, first as a nurse, then an attorney as well as the demands of a large family. It wasn’t until her retirement that she was able to develop her interest in artistic expression. Most of her Susan Oliverio's work comes from travels with her husband and her most loved location, New York City. With the photographic image, she tries to capture an essence of an emotion, a unique perspective or tell a story. She has shown in various galleries in New York, Westchester and Long Island.

A Creative Moment - Starting September 13th

Beginning Thursday, September 13th, 2018

Thursdays, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Ages 10 to adult.

Everyone is creative in some way, whether it is planning an exquisite meal, knitting a gorgeous scarf, painting a masterpiece, or crafting a handmade card. Come together and share a moment with other creative individuals. Bring your own project to work on or open one of the library’s Art Boxes for an easy, self-directed project. Work in family groups or with a group of friends. This is a great opportunity for families to spend some quality time together. We ask that school age children come with an adult. Attend every week or periodically when available. There are plenty of supplies on hand on the Art Cart as well as some coloring books in case you want a calm, meditative task. All are encouraged to share their work in a fun, supportive atmosphere.

Facilitated by Jen Armbruster and Debbie Rizzo, one or both of whom will be available each week to answer questions, provide suggestions, offer feedback, or organize an exhibition of the work in a Library display case.

For questions, you can email the library at keelerlibrary@wlsmail.org or call at 914-669-5161. You can also email Jen at jarmbruster1@optimum.net or Debbie at drizzo195@gmail.com with questions.
