You're also invited to visit the library to consult with a librarian and/or to "walk" our finger labyrinth! Walking a labyrinth can quiet the mind, open the heart, and ground the body. If you can't stop by in person, check out the library's home page to chat with a librarian if you have questions or would like other suggestions for resources on health and wellbeing.
