The Festus Public Library is requesting a grant award in the amount of $1331.33 to provide information relating to the potential health effects of Seasonal Affective Disorder or SAD and to provide SAD light therapy equipment for in-library use and for library patron checkout. The Check Out SAD Light Therapy project will feature a kick-off event at the Festus Public Library where a counselor will present on what SAD is, the benefits of SAD light therapy equipment, and answer any questions that library patrons may have. After the kick off event, the library will continue to promote the use of the SAD light therapy equipment through social media, signage in the library, and through word-of-mouth. The kick-off event will feature information about SAD and light therapy from MedlinePlus.
