Children's Library working with the St. Louis Red Cross

Wish your kids knew more about first aid and emergency situations? We can help with that. Our Children's Library is partnering with the St. Louis chapter of the American Red Cross to offer fun, educational programs on a Basic Aid Training theme for kids in Kindergarten and up all year long. Coming up on Monday, March 21st at 6pm we have a program called All Choked Up & Rescue Breathing where children will learn how to prevent a choking emergency and how to use the Rescue Breathing Technique. These programs are super additions for Boy and Girl Scouts working on First Aid badges. The program will be held in the Children's Library and kids are asked to bring a teddy bear or a stuffed animal to practice on. If you have any questions, give us a call on 618 344 1112, email Miss Alison at alisond(at)mvlibdist(dot)org, or stop by and see us!
