What do Narcan Training, Dessert Decorating, & Business Basics Have in Common?

You can do them all at your local East End Library!

December 14th @ 12 PM – BUSINESS BASICS: This course prepares you to identify your purpose, be about your passion, create a solid foundation, set smart goals, and fulfill the necessary requirements to legally do business in the State of VA. I have paperwork on hand and it is ALL free! Together we will create a customized plan, that will train you on how to rise above challenges and make them work for you, enabling you to co-create a life and career based off of the things you love, but most importantly were created to do.

December 19th @ 3 PM – NARCAN TRAINING: So many of us or have been or know someone who has been affected by the opioid crisis in America. Join us for a free, quick training on how to administer Narcan (naloxone) in an emergency. Participants will receive a free Narcan kit, and old expired Narcan may be dropped off for disposal.

December 20th @ 3:30 PM – “NAILED IT!” DESSERT DECORATING FOR TEENS: Teens will work in teams to recreate our sweet desserts in this two round competition judged by some of our baking enthusiast librarians. This program may not be suitable for those with food allergies. Registration is required.
