The Prospect Heights Library is teaming up with LifeSource and Culver’s to help replenish dangerously low blood supplies. Donate a pint of blood during our “Give a Pint, Get a Pint” Blood Drive and receive a coupon valid for one free pint of Culver’s fresh frozen custard, and find out blood type for free! Blood donors must be at least 17 years old (16 with written parental consent), weigh at least 110 pounds and be in general good health. The donation process takes about an hour and is both safe and comfortable. Please bring a proper photo ID, list of current medications, a list of places visited outside the U.S. in the last three years. For information on Donor preparation, visit http://www.lifesource.org/donate-blood/donor-preparation. Register by calling or visiting the Information Desk, ext. 35, or register online. Several appointments are available each hour. Walk-ins are also welcome, but may have to wait. Donors should drink plenty of fluids (such as juice or water) early in the day to increase blood flow. Those who have questions about blood donations can find answers at www.lifesource.org.
