Library program provides books to those unable to visit branches

Share Tweet Share Email Comments Print As two library staff members wheeled a book cart down the hall, an excited Ramona Lauber called out to her friends. It was the Toledo Lucas County Public Library's monthly visit to Sacred Heart Home in Oregon, part of rounds to more than 50 nursing homes and health-care sites. An outfitted truck, the “Book Hauler,” straps rows of books and DVDs in place for delivery. “When we hear they're coming, everything stops to make sure we're here in our room when he's going to show up,” Ms. Lauber said Thursday. The library in 1937 started its bookmobile service to visit patrons outside its buildings. In this program, workers can go room to room to meet readers, said Pat Nigro, the library's outreach services manager. “In many of the facilities that we serve, we actually set up in the common meeting room or the activities room and people come down with their walkers and come to see us,” Ms. Nigro said. This truck expands the library's outreach and establishes a one-on-one relationship with lifelong learners, she said. “It is so much fun to build on a person's reading interest and then, in a sense, recommending other authors so that they can broaden their reading taste,” Ms. Nigro said Ms. Lauber, 69, flipped through an eclectic mix of her requests and recommended picks. They included a Tito Puente record, a Lonely Planet travel guide, and a book by comedian Bob Hope. “Sometimes I like [something] peaceful. Sometimes I like to shake it up a little bit,” she said over an assortment of salsa music. Borrowed items like these are a way to be in her “own world.” Ms. Lauber jots down topics that interest her and asks for them from the library. The program is perfect for those who enjoy reading and cannot visit the library, Ms. Lauber said. “These books, I kind of get out of myself, and it's nice,” she said. “I can still walk, Continue Reading

College hockey notebook: Northeastern trio of Adam Gaudette, Dylan Sikura and Nolan Stevens providing Husky production

If you want to see the college game’s version of Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand, look no further than Northeastern’s stellar duo of junior center Adam Gaudette and senior right winger Dylan Sikura. Braintree’s Gaudette was the national scoring leader after Saturday’s play, his 36 points (17 goals, 19 assists) one ahead of Denver’s Henrik Borgstrom, while Sikura (14 goals, 20 assists) was part of a four-way tie for third. Gaudette and Sikura have 197 points in 83 games played together; NU is 47-25-11 in those games. While coach Jim Madigan split them up on Saturday night, following a Friday 3-0 loss at UMass, they were together on the power play and on some shifts in the third period of a 5-0 home thrashing of the Minutemen. The third member of their triumvirate was largely responsible for that win. Senior captain Nolan Stevens had his second career hat trick as part of a four-point night that gave him 102 for his career. He became the 51st Northeastern player in triple digits, joining older brother John, (26-80-106 from 2013-17), Sikura (126) and Gaudette (118), among others. “I think we’re going good right now. I think we’ve been together for about a month now. Me and Gaud played together all last year and most of the year before. We know each other and we know each other’s tendencies,” Sikura said. “Obviously, with Noles, he’s a big guy. He’s big down low. He’s skilled. “Off ice, we’ve been roommates now for four years. Everything is clicking for us.” Madigan proved an apt hockey chemist when he strung the trio together. “They’re dynamic together,” Madigan said. “They work off each other well. Sikura is more cerebral, while Gaudette is more pressuring the puck and playing with a physical edge. They find each other. They are in their third season together. They came together when we went on that run to the Hockey East championship in Continue Reading

State flags Sacred Heart’s handling of sex assault cases

Sacred Heart Hospital violated four state Health Department regulations in the way it handled a number of sexual assault cases last year, according to a recently released state inspection report. Last fall, the Health Department reviewed records at the center city Allentown hospital after receiving a complaint, the report notes. Its inspectors found the hospital failed to properly collect evidence for three people who went to the emergency room for treatment after alleged sexual assaults, the reported said. The patients then were transferred elsewhere for examinations and collection of evidence, it said. Sacred Heart also failed to provide written information about emergency contraception to its staff, the report said, which it is required to do under the law. And it did not give patients written information on financial assistance and about the crisis center and counseling, the report stated. Sacred Heart spokeswoman Barbara Wood said staff followed state rules for patient care, but did not properly document that in medical records. “This investigation ultimately was about our lack of documentation rather than our lack of providing all the appropriate information required,” she said. The state instructed Sacred Heart to update its policies and, among other things, to ensure that rape examinations are conducted in the emergency department. In response to the inspection, Sacred Heart created a new policy to guide staff through specific steps to help victims and to document treatment, Wood said. Sacred Heart has nurses trained to perform exams on rape victims, but because staff is limited, patients are sometimes transferred to facilities where there are specialized staff available, Wood said. The exams can be conducted by doctors or nurses who complete a medical forensic care program to become trained sexual assault examiners. Wood also said the Catholic hospital should have filed for an exemption from having to provide emergency contraception and that it Continue Reading

Sacred Heart senior plants 200 trees in Shively

Achievement: Cayley Crum started ReTree Shively, a project that has planted over 200 trees in parks and along roads in the Shively neighborhood. Cayley, 18, is a senior at Sacred Heart Academy.In the beginning: Four years ago, Cayley was looking for an idea for a Girl Scout Silver and Gold Award project. Her scout leader gave out a list of ideas that included “paint a bench” and “plant a tree.” Cayley remembers thinking that planting one tree would not make a whole lot of difference, so she made her goal to plant 100 trees. Until she was 9 years old, Cayley lived in Shively, and her mother grew up in that area, and during a brainstorming session with her mother they hit on the idea, “Shively needs more trees.” Cayley did not complete work on the Girl Scout award, but she met and exceeded the tree-planting goal she originally set.Growing the project:  “It was the right place, the right time, and the right people,” she said. She remembers going to a meeting where Mike Hayman, landscape director of Whitehall Louisville’s Estate Garden, was speaking. She said Hayman showed them “the ropes of planting,” introduced them to nurseries, and helped them decide which kinds of trees would work best in which areas. She said Shively city officials thought it was a great idea and agreed to plant the trees and keep them watered. Cayley and her mother have raised over $24,000 for the project, receiving contributions from local businesses and family members. Her most recent project is planting 15 trees on Dixie Highway and Garrs Lane, and she received $2,000 from Erin Thompson, Louisville’s Urban Forester.On planting days: Cayley said that usually the planting is done on school days, and the actual planting is done by Shively employees, but she has helped by staking the trees, and digging small trenches around the trees to keep water from Continue Reading
