Raising Awareness

September is Suicide Prevention Month and the Four County Suicide Prevention Coalition will be presenting the Stomp on the Stigma suicide awareness campaign, along with the annual "One Step at a Time 5K Run/Walk". The Coalition is collecting donations of old shoes which will then be displayed on the campuses of Defiance College and Northwest State Community College in September. The goal is to collect and display 180 pairs of shoes to represent the 180 suicide deaths in the 18-24 year old population in Ohio in 2010. 

A collection container has been placed in the library entrance for you to place your unwanted shoes. These will be collected until September 19.

The 5K Run/Walk will be held on September 27 at Defiance College starting at 9:00 a.m. This will be a chip timed race and all proceeds go to suicide prevention and programming in the Four County area. Registration forms are available in the library or at the 5K Run/Walk website.

Fall Children's Programming

Registration for fall children's programming will be held September 8-19. Beginning Sept. 8 at 9:30 a.m., you may register online, by phone, or at the main desk of the library. Classes will be held from:

Annual Flu Clinic

Mark the date on your calendar for the Fall Flu Clinic at the library on Tuesday, October 14, from 2:00-5:30 p.m. in the community room. The clinic will be conducted by the Fulton County Health Department. 

This year, insurance companies must pay for immunizations as a "first dollar" service, meaning that you will not have to provide a co-pay or meet a deductible. The Health Department has contracted with seven health insurance plans, and will be billing the cost of these vaccinations to those plans for their members. Medicare part B and Medicaid will also be accepted as payment.

For those who do not have insurance or a plan with one of the contracted insurance companies, the costs are listed below. A sliding fee scale is available for the administration fee.

High dose vaccine for age 65+ $55
Vaccine for adults $40
Vaccine for children, 6 mos. - 18 yrs $40
