Two events upcoming at Woodstock library

WOODSTOCK – The Woodstock Public Library, 414 W. Judd St., has planned a pair of events for the upcoming week.

The library will hold “Civil War Field Embalming: a Demonstration of Period Technique” at 7 p.m. Tuesday. During the event, attendees will learn about the verification of death, period medicine and chemistry, human anatomy, the preparation of dead soldiers for shipping and burial, and 19th-century mourning rituals. It will be presented by Jon Austin, who will play the role of Dr. Benjamin F. Lyford, a physician at the Battle of Gettysburg. A day later, at 6 p.m., the library will host “Transition Made Simple: Understanding Medicare.” The program will inform people about the issues affecting seniors today, including how to enroll in Medicare, what it does and doesn’t cover and how you can control out-of-pocket expenses. Registration isn’t required for either program.

For information, contact Beth Ryan at bethr@woodstockil.info or 815-338-0542.
