Healing Library

The Healing Library originated with a team of people that includes a children’s librarian, a licensed children’s counselor specializing in art and play therapy, a children’s literature advocate, and a programming librarian.   

The Healing Library Model was replicated by a partnership with Stratford Parents’ Place Family Resource Center and Stratford Library Children’s Department.  With the help of community partners such as Stratford Community Services, this kit was customized for the Stratford Community.  

These kits are available at both Stratford Parents’ Place, located at Stratford Academy/Johnson House, 719 Birdseye Street, Stratford CT, 06615, 203-381-6992 or at the Stratford Library Children’s Department located at 2203 Main St, Stratford, CT 06615, 203-385-4165.    

Online kits include:

Healing Library: Coping with Coronavirus

Healing Library: Death of a Loved One

Healing Library: Coping with Childhood Anxiety


Stratford Parents’ Place and the Stratford Library Children’s Department acknowledge that this project is made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered by the Connecticut State Library, and a Community Impact Grant from the Stratford Rotary Club.
