The American Red Cross is facing a looming blood shortage, leading to an urgent need for donors of all blood types to roll up a sleeve and give.
Donations through the Red Cross are down about 8 percent over the last 11 weeks, resulting in about 80,000 fewer donations than expected. The number of donors continues to decline, and the shortfall is significant enough that the Red Cross could experience an emergency situation in the coming weeks.
Through the years, the LaRue County Public Library has worked hard to provide materials, programs and an environment to be a community place. You can borrow items, participate in youth and adult programs, use computers or wireless access, research genealogy information, fax, scan, make copies or simply relax by enjoying conversation or reading the newspaper or a magazine.
