Local libraries provide a number of books and DVDs focused on helping children work with parents and other adults to improve behavioral and learning skills.
Through generous grant funding from the Margaret Clark Morgan Foundation, the Mental Health and Recovery Board recently placed almost 400 books and other resources at local libraries.
The project, titled “Reading for Resiliency” is focused on helping parents and children work together to build skills that will help them work through emotional and behavioral difficulties. Materials purchased through the grant are for various populations including children and adolescents grades K-12, parents, teachers, and other professionals.
All materials purchased are focused on introducing non-medication based approaches to handling behavioral and emotional challenges as well as offering hands on activities for parents and children to complete together.
Collections of Reading for Resiliency materials have been placed at the Ashland Public Library, Loudonville Public Library, and School/Community Liaison Library.
Some titles in the Reading for Resiliency libraries include:
