The Pauline Haass Public Library is hosting four events within the next month that will useful for Sussex residents on several fronts.
"Our mission is to promote literacy, but we also want to connect people to information, ideas and one another," said Becky Murray, the assistant director at the library.
"We want to do that not only through the materials in our library, but also by bringing in interesting speakers to talk about topics that are effecting people in our community," added Murray.
The first event, "Nourish Your Noggin," will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 11. Judy Gunkel from the Alzheimer’s Association will give a talk about brain health. Attendees are asked to register by calling the library.
Attendees will learn how your brain works, what is normal in regard to age-related memory changes, ways to tailor your lifestyle to maximize brain wellness and how to reduce your risks of developing dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.
On Thursday, Sept 20 at 7 p.m., the library will host "It's Train Times: The story of the Bug Line." Attendees will learn about the history of the Bug Line, which has become the topic of debate in Sussex.
If you have questions about your financial future, "Unlocking Social Security," will be held from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 25. In the same vein, a "Medicare Enrollment Information" event will be held at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 3. These events will feature local experts who can answer questions about each of the programs.
