The group has a library with many helpful books available that you may check out to help you continue on through your grief journey. The books cover a range of topics such as: the death of an infant, a sibling, or an adult. Many are authored by people who have also lost one or more children, or one or more siblings.

You can look through the library of 175 books at any monthly meeting or ask the librarian (Sherry Bailey) about what books are available. Another way to see what books are available is to simply scroll down from here and you'll find a new Library Index has been added to this page. To view the index of books available Scroll Down, or CLICK HERE.

NOTE: The index is sorted alphabetically by Author.

If you would like more information on any book or author listed, CLICK HERE. At this link you will be able to perform a search on the book title or the author.

Books are signed out the same as at a public library and are asked to be returned in two months. There is no penalty fee for late returns but we only ask that you do return them when you are finished with them.

Books are added to the library periodically by the group. Another way books are added to the library is if anyone in the group buys a book on their own, and feel the reading of it helped them, then perhaps they'd like to donate the book to help others as well.
