Stuart book to be reprinted
The latest reprinting project for the Jesse Stuart Foundation is under way.
Jesse Stuart’s “Album of Destiny” is being prepared for publication. “Album of Destiny” was originally published in 1944. It is a collection of sonnets that follows the members of a mountain community through their lives. In Dr. James M. Gifford and Erin R. Kazee’s biography “Jesse Stuart: An Extraordinary Life,” it is noted that Stuart considered this his best book of poetry.
Individuals can assist with the reprint project by making donations to the Jesse Stuart Foundation. A minimum $50 donation will reserve one copy of the book for the donor and send one to the school or library of their choice. Donations will be accepted until Aug. 15. The targeted release date for the reprinted book is October and it will retail for $30.
For more information, call the Jesse Stuart Foundation at (606) 326-1667, toll free at (855) 407-6243 or email at email@example.com.
Southern Ohio Medical Center will host a mental health in-service titled “Dementia: The Basics” at 1 p.m. Sept. 10 in the East Campus Conference Room in the Gibson Building.
The event will feature Melissa Dever of the Alzheimer’s Association. CEUs are offered for social work and nursing in Ohio.
For more information, or to RSVP, call Erica Kegley at (740) 356-6845.
New items offered
at Boyd library
Night-vision goggles, metal detectors and walkie-talkies are among items available for checkout at Boyd County Public Library.
The new items are part of BCPL’s innovative new Checkout Your Community program, which kicked off July 1. The lending program is designed to introduce library card holders (BCPL has more than 40,000) to the community’s activities and organizations by allowing them to check out a pass or equipment to try an activity that interests them.
The night-vision goggles, metal detectors and walkie-talkies join other sporting and recreational equipment already available, including volleyballs, basketballs, soccer balls, tennis rackets, fishing poles, binoculars and Frisbee golf equipment.
Outside groups and organizations are also an important part of Checkout Your Community. Those already involved include: Ashland Tennis Center (outside court time); Ashland Area YMCA (family pass); Neon Links mini golf at the Kyova Mall (discounted family pass); Kyova Mall (free kiosk rental); Highlands Museum & Discovery Center (family pass); and City of Ashland Parks & Recreation (Dawson Pool pass).
Also, the Ashland Fire Department and Ashland Police Department will give tours to anyone who checks out a pass from the library, and calls to schedule it.
Library card holders can place a hold on any of the items or passes by searching “Checkout Your Community” in the BCPL catalog, which can be found at thebookplace.org.
For more information, call Ben Nunley at (606) 329-0518, ext. 1210.
