Remember to bring the following items with you to your pre-scheduled appointment: (1) your Medicare card, (2) a list of your prescription drugs, (3) dosages(s) for each drug, and (4) how often each drug is taken.

Census taker job help at the library

On Wednesday, Nov. 13, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., the Youngsville Public Library will be hosting Census representatives who will help you to complete the 20-minute online application to become a door-to-door 2020 census worker from January through April. The 2020 Census is looking for people to fill roughly 400 census-taker jobs within Warren County. This could be a great part-time job or a way to make some extra spending money. Census takers are paid $16 per hour plus mileage, must be available for a minimum of 20 hours per week (but may work up to 35 hours per week), and must attend training. Stop by for more information, call YPLibrary at 563-7670, or go to YoungsvilleLibrary.org/community news tab.

Rent rebate forms

Rent rebate forms and booklets are available at the Youngsville Public Library. The property tax/rent rebate program provides rebates up to $975 each year to hundreds of thousands of eligible seniors, widows, widowers, and Pennsylvanians and residents with disabilities.

Become a Library-Angel

Become a Library-Angel and help the Youngsville Public Library. From now through Monday, Dec. 23, the Youngsville Public Library has a special tree on display near the circulation desk.

The Library Angel Tree is filled with a variety of ornaments listing basic items (and their costs/donation denomination) that are vital to the survival of the library, everything from custodial supply items to energy-saving lightbulbs to office supplies, acid-free historical collection materials and more (just to name a few).

Community members are encouraged to take an ornament from the tree and make a donation at the circulation desk. You will receive a Library Angel ornament to place back on the tree for each donation denomination that is made. You also have the option to make a donation to honor of someone or in memoriam. Names of Angel Tree donors (as well as names of those being honored or donations made in memoriam) will be listed on the Youngsville Public Library’s website and the Youngsville area community news page.

“This annual fundraising event was actually started by the Friends of the Youngsville Library in 2009 in response to the wave of cuts in State and county commissioner support,” stated Library Director Kristy Wallace “and the Angel Tree has become yet another way for our library to try to counteract a portion of the over $12,000 loss in income that we have been experiencing on a yearly basis since 2009. We can’t express enough how truly grateful we are to every one of our ‘Angels’ who support us every year and patronize our wonderful library.”

Free “How to Prevent Caregiver Burnout” program

At 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 12, there will be a free program at the Youngsville Public Library discussing “How to prevent Caregiver Burnout.”

The program is presented by a representative from LIFE (Living Independence For the Elderly) NWPA. Katrina will also be available to answer questions about what options are available for home care assistance.
