Bibliotherapy is yet another service from the Library - we have a wide selection of books to cover any need. Self-help books are particularly popular, and hold promise to fix problems. How to fix depression? anxiety? self-loathing? Not simple at all, but there may be a book that will calm the beast within. No complete answers to understanding others or yourself, but good words to build empathy and understanding during this Mental Health Week. Here is a sampling of titles to try.
