Our director, John Howard, recently posted on Facebook to share that it's okay to not be okay right now.
We're not therapists; we're librarians. So we are doing what librarians do best: vetting some online resources to share with you. We'll keep adding to this as we find quality links to share. If you have a good source to recommend, send us a Facebook Message or email us at Staff@MahometPublicLibrary.org
We are all muddling through this together and we need each other to do this well!
