A Few Notes on Streaming Music

Streaming services have changed the way we listen to music by making (almost) all of the songs available all of the time. We’ll talk about the major services like Spotify and Apple Music, and several you can access for free through the library. Then we’ll dive into tips for finding music and how to listen without burning through your data plan.

Practical Parenting: Marijuana - The facts, the risks and how to prevent use

You may have heard a variety of claims about marijuana in the media or in everyday conversation. As a parent, making sense of conflicting messages related to marijuana can be confusing. Accurate and balanced information about marijuana is more complex than the simple statements you often hear. Learn about factual information that is based on scientific research. In addition, we’ll discuss local and national trends related to substance abuse among our youth. Understand what factors put our youth at risk for use and what we, as a community, can do to strengthen protective factors to prevent or delay the onset of using substances.

Presented by counselors from Syntero in partnership with The STAND Project.
