  2. 2. “...vendors are present offering ideas for making senior life easier…” You might be seeing a familiar face more often out and about on your delivery route. Outreach extraordinaire, Heather, has begun working full time and, with that, comes an opportunity to provide even more great programming for our beloved patrons. Heather will be starting a Great Decisions program at the Blendon Senior Center in addition to the group that meets at the Westerville Senior Center. This program will take place on the 3rd Friday of every month. Upcoming topics will be: March 17: International Trade April 21: China’s Maritime Buildup To learn more about how to register, call Outreach at 614-529-5034 or to get more info on the program itself visit MANGAGER’S CORNER WHAT’S NEW? Serve Our Seniors (S.O.S.) Every year the Westerville Public Library has a table at the Serve Our Seniors event, hosted by the Westerville Police Department. Many vendors are present of- fering ideas for making senior life easier and safer as well as representatives from the public such as the police and the library. Educational topics that are covered range from insurance fraud, scams, identity theft protection, personal safety, security solutions, caregiving aid and estate planning. This is an opportunity to learn new things and to just get out of the house on a chilly early spring day. This year, S.O.S. Day will be held on Saturday, March 25th at Westerville South High School from 9 AM - Noon. The event is free, there are door prizes AND a free lunch is offered!!! We would love to see you there. Stop by the library booth and say, “hi.” For more information, please call 614-901-6860. Julie Kerns, Outreach Manager* 2 DID YOU KNOW? The library offers a couple of Great Decisions group discussions through the Outreach Dept. This is a federal program based on the “avon model” in which schools, libraries, and community groups can watch, read, and participate in active, informal conversations about world issues together. Did you know that Great Decisions began in 1954 in Portland, OR by the Vice President of Foreign Policy Associa- tion Roger Mastrude.
