Our speaker, thanks to Jim Bergers, was Stacey Johnson - Stratford Parent's Place Coordinator.  Stratford Parents Place received a Community Impact Award and Stacey gave us the final report.  Parents Place heard about the Healing Library Bags from a Librarian in Maine and brought it to Stratford and our Library.  The Bag is full of games, books, arts and crafts and a handy discussion guide covering the topics of Dealing with the Death of a Family Member, Loss of a Pet and Alzheimer's Disease and your family.  Coming soon are kits to help families navigate Divorce and Step-Parenting, Cancer/Illness, Incarceration and other topics.  Right now, there are 3 bags at Parents Place and 3 at the Stratford Library.
