Be a babysitter with training course

On Saturday, May 16, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., boys and girls will take Red Cross-certified training in babysitting.

There is a $20 fee for materials and supplies and the students need to bring a lunch.

American Red Cross babysitter's training gives 11 to 15 year olds the skills and confidence they need to become great babysitters.

The six-hour class covers training in care giving, decision making, safety and first aid skills, and preventing and responding to emergencies. Course participants receive the Babysitter's Training Handbook, which provides course review and 30 easy-to-follow first aid action plans for handling emergencies.

The program is sponsored by the Friends of the Jamestown Library.

Sign up in person at the library, the $20 fee is required at registration. Call the library for details at 423-7280.
