     Summer Library Program 2017 for children, teens and adults, is right around the corner starting June 5, but Amy has a jump on things.  The SLP theme is Build A Better World.  For the whole month of May, come on in and tell us how to  Build a Better World in your own environment and be entered to win one cool PRRIZE! Oh yeah! The winner will be chosen Thursday, June 1.

     Speaking of all things cool, Becky has the cutest Simply Crafts creation for Thursday, May 18 at 6 p.m. Little crafted critters. Hang them up or display them where ever you would like. Remember Simply Crafts is every third Thursday at 6 p.m. No reservations need, and all materials supplied. And, it's FREE!

     The last thing you think of when you hear or see the word FREE is anything medical. Am I right? I'm right. This is what makes the highlight adult program of May a treasure. 
     The Pearl Public Library is hosting a free heart health program, presented by Magnolia Health, a physician-driven, Mississippi-based, Medicaid Coordinated Care Organization (CCO), on Thursday, May 25 at 6 p.m.
       Called “Listening to Your Healthy Heart Matters,” the program is designed to follow its namesake, the book entitled, Listening to Your Healthy Heart Matters, written by Michelle Bain, with Dr. Sharon Cresci. Participants will receive free copies of the program book. 
        “Latresa Robb, RN will present the seminar,” said Becky Martin, Magnolia Health’s Community Relations Representative.  “The presentation is for those with heart disease and those who want to prevent it.  It covers how the heart works, warning signs of a heart attack, risk factors, nutrition, heart disease and exercise, cardiac testing, and treatment options. There will be opportunities to ask questions.”
      Martin and Robb visited the Pearl Public Library in 2016 for another relevant health program which was on Diabetes.
