Grief Resource List
Whether from COVID-19 or other reason, grief is too common a subject right now. I thought the story from the Median County District Library is worth sharing. Grieving and reminiscence go hand in hand whether grieving the loss of a loved one, a pet, or a past time. Talking about and sharing stories with others can bring comfort. If you have a grief resource you would like to share please email Sally at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Grief Kits contain books, activities, and resources to support children as young as toddlers and their caregivers in their grieving journey. Find Grief Kits in the Parenting section of your nearest MCDL branch.
Grief Kits are brought to you in collaboration with Waite & Son Funeral Homes, in memory of Noah Elliot Taylor. To read more about Noah's life and how the Grief Kits began, click here: https://medina-gazette.com/news/205105/library-funeral-home-partner-on-childrens-grief-materials/
