On Monday, June 22, and Tuesday, June 23, the library will host the McGregor Institute of EMS for Babysitting Training workshops. Youngsters attending this course will learn CPR and first aid, child safety, how to handle emergencies, the care and feeding of infants and children, and about the business of being a babysitter. Those who complete the course will receive CPR, First Aid, and Babysitting Certifications.
