The Library will hold the NYS Citizen Preparedness Corps Training on Thursday, March 9, at 6:00 pm. With severe weather events becoming more frequent and more extreme, it is more important than ever that New Yorkers are prepared for disasters. The NYS Citizen Preparedness Training Program teaches residents to have the tools and resources to prepare for any type of disaster, respond accordingly and recover as quickly as possible to pre-disaster conditions. This training course will provide an introduction to responding to a natural or man-made disaster. Participants will be advised on how to properly prepare for any disaster, including developing a family emergency plan and stocking up on emergency supplies. The program is free and open to anyone, but registration is required, so please contact Cuba Library at (585) 968-1668 or email to sign up. This course will be presented by Master Sergeant Adam Winters, Training Instructor, NYS Citizen Preparedness Corps.

On Friday, March 10 from 11 am – 12:30 pm the Cuba Library will hold a presentation on Apple Device Basics.

Get connected, identify common apps, and build confidence to use your devices safely. We will show the presentation in the community room, and a library staff member will be on hand to assist patrons throughout. This presentation is free and open to all patrons, but because it is outside of normal library hours, registration is required. Please contact Cuba Library at (585) 968-1668 or email to sign up.
