Our Bereavement Library provides an assortment of information and is available to those interested in learning more about grief and loss. There are lending libraries in the Ithaca office (located in the lower level in the bereavement area) and the Cortland office (located in the large conference room) where books are available for self-checkout. Each location has a wide variety of articles about grief that you may take home. Some of the subjects covered include information on specific loss issues such as men and grief, how to support grieving children and teens, and dealing with the loss of a sibling. Lists of suggested readings and internet resources are also available.
Our large bookshelf at the Ithaca office is filled with picture books for children to help explain death, dying and grief in meaningful and age-appropriate ways.
