The library has partnered with the Wheatland and Area Hospice Society to bring you compassion corner.
Compassion corner is a dedicated space in the library where you can find an array of print resources on death, dying, supportive care and coping with end of life. The resources are suitable for any age group and focus on aspects of grief, stress of caregiving, and loss during illness or death.
"A compassionate corner means that they have a single, directed place to go. This is a nice place for them to go within the library to just gather some resources so that they might be able to help themselves through a path they didn't really know they were on." - Dr. Joni McNeely, WAHS president.
