How to Recognize When a Loved One Is Suicidal
Acknowledging the warning signs of suicidal thoughts is both upsetting and frightening. You may not know where to begin or how you can help. However, the first step to preventing the suicide of a loved one is recognizing the warning signs so that action can be taken. Here are a few of the most common warning signs.
Giving Away Possessions
The Delaware County District Library is encouraging readers to exercise their bodies and their minds this summer. In the spirit of movement and fitness, the Powell, Ostrander and Delaware Main libraries are all kicking off walking clubs this month.
Today we’re adding 21 more board games to our library’s collection. In addition, we’ve added a collection of games both new and old to our Orange branch. So now you can borrow the games you love and learn some new favorites from two locations in our library system.

During a Delaware County District Library Outreach storytime children learned about our services in the community and helped paint pinecones to craft into flowers. These flowers were distributed to our patrons on the bookmobile at local assisted and independent living communities. We snapped pictures of the patrons receiving the flowers and brought them back to the next storytime to show the children.
The ticket winners have been announced. Congratulations to Stephanie Founds, Ellie Muir and Aaron Evans.
For anyone else who would like to see Piper on Wednesday, January 20, tickets are still available. Click here for information on how to purchase.
The Ostrander Adult Book Discussion Group met late last month and gave a thumbs up to the book Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger. Much praise was given for Krueger’s writing style and the story itself was a compelling blend of murder, mystery and family drama set in a small Minnesota town in 1961. The group highly recommends it and gave it a 4.5 out of 5 rating.
