Governor Brown asks for assistance in knocking down huge wild fires across Oregon!!

Governor Kate Brown
“We’re under a major threat from forest fires…”

Governor Kate Brown Statement on Oregon’s Request for a Federal Emergency Declaration for Wildfires

If granted, Oregon would be the first state to receive direct assistance under a Presidential Emergency Declaration for wildfires 
 

(Salem, OR) — Governor Kate Brown issued the following statement today on her request to President Joseph R. Biden, Jr., to approve a federal emergency declaration for the State of Oregon — under the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act — due to extreme risk of significant wildfires:

“Last week, as Oregon faced predicted high winds, sustained hot and dry conditions, and the potential for lightning — and with 168,000 acres burning across the state at the time — Oregonians braced for increased and worsening fires. State firefighting teams and agencies, along with local partners and resources brought in from California and Washington through the Emergency Management Assistance Compact, mobilized to prepare for a swift response and to protect lives, communities, and our natural resources.

“Thanks to science and data, we know enough in the days ahead of anticipated weather and fire patterns — just like states that prepare for hurricanes — that it is imperative to communicate with the public, pre-position resources for our fire response, and employ preventive measures, such as public safety power shut-offs. All of these efforts reflect a modernized approach to meeting the needs of fighting the fires of this century; they are proactive measures that we can take to protect communities and save lives.

“The request I made for a federal disaster declaration is critical to helping bolster our state’s response, and it presents an opportunity for Oregon to partner with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to bridge the gaps we know exist as we work hard to protect our communities. We still have several weeks of peak fire season ahead of us, five large active fires, and 274,000 acres burning statewide. If granted, Oregon would be the first state ever to receive such a declaration for wildfire response — but unfortunately, certainly not the last to need this important assistance.

“I am incredibly grateful for the strong partnership we have with the Biden-Harris administration and with FEMA, with whom we have worked over the past several years on various emergencies. I urge their earnest consideration of my request so that, together, we can protect Oregonians and our communities, and serve as a model of federal support for states facing the ongoing threat of wildfires.”

It’s all happenin’ at the Newport Library!!

The Newport Public Library is please to announce the return of Youth Programming, starting in October 2022! We will be reintroducing our weekly programs for the youngest of our Library friends, Toddler Time, Preschool Storytime, and Bilingual Preschool Storytime.

Our weekly programming will begin Tuesday, October 4 at 10:30 a.m. with Toddler Time, hosted by Linda Annable our Youth Services Supervisor. Toddler Time is geared for children 0-3 and their adults, older children are welcome to join as well. Each session features books, songs, and stories chosen especially for our youngest Library visitors. The relaxed, welcoming environment gives toddlers a wonderful introduction to the joys of reading and all that the Library has to offer. Come visit us on Tuesdays for a romping time in our Children’s Room at Toddler Time!

On Wednesdays, starting October 5, Vanessa Clausing, our Youth Services Librarian, will host Preschool Storytime at 10:30 a.m. Preschool Storytime gently introduces preschoolers, ages 3-5, to the skills they need to become successful readers and successful classroom participants. Children will enjoy books, stories, songs, rhymes and crafts at each session. Adults are encouraged to participate with their children and enjoy all that the Library has to offer before and after Storytime.

Each Thursday, beginning October 6, join Rachel Diego Leon, our Bilingual Community Resource Specialist and Linda Annable, for Bilingual Preschool Storytime – presented in both Spanish and English at 5:30 p.m. This program is very much like Preschool Storytime, however we use both English and Spanish for each story presented. All are welcome regardless of your native language. Our focus is on preschoolers, but we encourage all family members to attend.

We will also be hosting monthly events for youth at the Library. Teen Third Thursday events, geared for 6th – 12th graders, start October 20 at 4:00 p.m. And, a new program we are especially excited about is a monthly LEGO® event First Friday Family LEGO® Fun, once a month from 2:30-4:30 p.m. October’s date is Friday the 7th. This monthly event will not have a Library host; parents, adults or an older sibling will need to accompany children under the age of 10.

All of these Library events are free to participants and no registration is necessary. We will provide everything needed for all of these events. You just bring yourself and/or your kiddos. We hope to see you here for one, or more, of our regular Youth Services Programs starting October 4th.

If you have any questions please email us at reference@newportlibrary.org or call the Newport Public Library at 541-265-2153.
