Since 1949, the month of May has been dedicated to promoting mental health awareness and prioritizing emotional and psychological well-being for individuals and communities. We hope that the library’s books, digital resources, and programs can help you on your mental health journey.
Displays & Recommended Reading
We have displays at the library with books on mental health topics for teens and adults, and our librarians have created a list of titles for adults that you can view through our online catalog. If you need help finding a specific book or topic, our librarians in Adult Services and Youth Services are always here to help.
