News from the Library for June 28, 2016
The Adult Literacy rate is measured by the percentage of the population ages 15
and older (both sexes) who can, with understanding, read and write a short,
simple statement on their everyday life. In Cumberland County, approximately 13%
of adults are illiterate. According to the 2013 Program for the International
Assessment for Adult Competencies (PIAAC), one in six American adults struggle
with basic English literacy. This amounts to a staggering 36 million people ages
16 to 65 in our country who have great difficulty on a daily basis to perform
such basic tasks as completing a job application, understanding a medication
label, or reading a simple story to their children! So, libraries, such as ours,
play a pivotal role in providing literacy services to individuals and
organizations. For example, our facility partners with CARC, the Cumberland
Adult Reading Council, who often use our study rooms tutoring to adults who need
help in basic reading, writing and math skills. This wonderful group was founded
in 2005 and their services are available free of charge. CARC is located inside
the local Tennessee College of Applied Technology (TCAT), Bldg #1, 910 Miller
Avenue, Crossville TN 38555. They are a 501©(3) nonprofit and their contact info
is: Tel: (931) 337-5809; Email is: firstname.lastname@example.org. It is therefore
obvious our innovative and effective services that we provide on an ongoing
basis, our role of promoting equitable access to information, and being a
welcoming library to all who enter its doors, continues to be critical to our
community. Of this we are very proud!

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - Parts One & Two (Special Rehearsal
Edition Script): The Official Script Book of the Original West End Production
by J. K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany To Be Released on July 31, 2016
Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, a
new play by Jack Thorne, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story
in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be
presented on stage. The play will receive its world premiere in London’s West
End on July 30, 2016. It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t
much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a
husband and father of three school-age children.
While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his
youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never
wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the
uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

WebMD, which is an excellent health information web site, highly recommends that
if you do one thing this summer to improve your diet, enjoy a cup of mixed fresh
berries -- blackberries, blueberries, or strawberries -- every day. They'll help
you load up on antioxidants, which may help prevent damage to tissues and reduce
the risks of age-related illnesses. Blueberries and blackberries are especially
antioxidant-rich. A big bonus: Berries are also tops in fiber, which helps keep
cholesterol low and may even help prevent some cancers.
