Congratulations to Jefferson County Library - Norhwest Branch for receiving a Public Library Programming Award. This project will focus on community members experiencing, or interested in learning about, a general decrease in energy or suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder SAD during periods of limited or low-level daylight. In addition to offering educational programming on mental health, the library will make available light therapy lamps for in-library use and for check out. The goal of the program is to reduce the stigma of mental health issues and illnesses by offering a variety of touch points for open exploration of the topic.
