A United Way-sponsored training for library staff about the Gatekeepers Program (identifying at-risk seniors) is being held at the Bethlehem Area Public Library on September 25. There are two sessions -- one at 2pm and one 3pm. Please contact Josh Berk (610-867-3761 x215) or Amy Angelo (email), Trainer Coordinator for the Gatekeepers Program, to reserve a spot. Be sure to let me know which time you plan to attend.
This free training is open to all libraries in Northampton and Lehigh Counties, and to concerned business owners and community members. Once completed, you will be given a Gatekeeper ID# and be qualified to make referrals to the Agency on Aging. Any and all library staff are welcome to attend.
