Library hosting ‘books and beyond’
The seeing eye
FRIENDS HOLD SILENT AUCTION: The Friends of the Hubbard Library will hold a new silent auction, “Silent Auction: Books and Beyond.” Items will be displayed at the library’s first floor display cases and on the shelves behind the circulation desk at the front entrance. People will be able to submit their bids on items using paper forms available on the shelves by the staircase. There will be a box where completed forms can be placed. The items for the silent auction have been donated by local businesses, artists and artisans. There are also baskets and other items for the auction. Proceeds from the event benefit the library. Proceeds from two handcrafted mats at the auction will be split between the library and the Youngstown Blue Coats, a local organization that assists veterans and homeless individuals.

CARE CENTER SELECTED: Cadence Care Network has been selected by the Annie E. Casey Foundation to conduct professional development based on the Reimagining Juvenile Justice Curriculum. As one of the 16 state and / or local organizations chosen from a nationwide applicant pool, Cadence Care Network will train frontline staff who are working with youth involved in the juvenile justice system. The RJJ Curriculum impacts families involved in the juvenile justice system, and is designed to help these staff better support, divert and redirect youth to appropriate and fair justice options. As a selected site, Cadence Care Network will deliver the curriculum in a regional format across Northeastern Ohio. These trainings will occur between January and September 2021. The curriculum itself encourages juvenile justice professionals to build on young people’s strengths and assets and to center their work in racial and ethnic equity. Professionals also will learn how to navigate and collaborate with other public systems to fully access resources for young people.
MEAL DISTRIBUTIONS: Nevels Temple Church, 939 Elm St., Youngstown will host a free to go dinner for those in need 2 to 3 p.m. today. Everyone must be in person to receive dinners. The food will be distributed as long as it lasts.
