October is Anti-Bullying Month

October is a very important time because it's National Anti-bullying month. Horton the Elephant wants to remind you to "Dare to Care". Because after all "A person's a person no matter how small!"

Stop by the children's desk at the library and we would be more than happy to show you books on the topic of bullying for children and for parents.

Here's a couple of website resources too:

 STOMP Out Bullying™  To encourage communities to work together to stop bullying and cyberbullying by increasing awareness of the prevalence and impact of bullying on all children of all ages.

Stop Help stop bullying at school, online, and in the community. National Bullying Prevention Center Make bullying prevention a movement that touches every community. Share information about the event through website updates; posts on social media channels; articles in newspapers, magazines, and online publications; or just connecting with someone in person.

National Child Traumatic Stress Network
National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) collection of resources for families, teens, educators, clinicians, mental health professionals, and law enforcement personnel on how to recognize, deal with, and prevent bullying
