e of Tennessee’s economic success is directly tied to our broadband Internet access.

To ensure that every community in Tennessee has the tools to economically succeed, we must measure who has broadband Internet access, if they are using it and how they are using it. Please help us make sure that every Tennessean’s voice is heard on this important topic by taking the 20-minute assessment. If you have questions related to our assessment, please contact broadband.research@tn.gov. - See more at: http://tn.gov/ecd/section/broadband-survey#sthash.OgJsfzsk.dpuf

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: admin@cumberlandliteracy.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!

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.

We’re All About Information!

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.
