It seems as though kids today have so much more to deal with than I ever did growing up. Either that or I didn’t see everything that was going on around me. Kids have been bullied for years and in many different ways. Tools and resources are so important in stopping what seems to have become the accepted behavior.

I have spent the past week feeling inundated by negative news coverage. Granted I am all for staying informed, but to continue to watch and listen to all the horrible things going on, sometimes makes me feel helpless. I am, however, reminded that there are still good people in the world.

Corn waiting to be harvested, cows munching quietly in the field, leaves rustling in the wind, the feel of a crisp autumn breeze, and a wide open country road.

At this point, perhaps the books I mentioned in my last posting have all been read or there wasn’t anything that jumped out at you. Never fear. The NSVRC library has many more children’s books and healthy sexuality books to go around!

At this point, it’s perhaps safe to say that school is out and the summer has begun for most of us. This brings to mind the thought of long, hot and for some humid days. Kids as well as parents become restless. What better way to occupy time than reading a book? In the case of the NSVRC library, not only would reading be going on, but valuable lessons as well.

I am beyond excited to announce that on June 6th, the NSVRC Library achieved a milestone. On this extraordinary day, the library collection reached 30,000! As it stands now, we have surpassed a long awaited goal of reaching and going beyond this fantastic number of unique titles. These are titles that pertain specifically to sexual violence, prevention, and other related topics.
