Keefe Library Receives Grant for Health and Wellness

The $7,500 grant from the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners will create a wellness area within the library.

From the MBLC press release​​​​​​​:

Using a Framework for Health Literacy grant, the Keefe Library at Boston Latin School will create a wellness area within the library that will be a place to find information about health topics relevant to high school students, particularly mental health issues, and serve as a place for students to decompress from the stresses of school and a rigorous course load. Students will be offered communication and mindfulness workshops through a partnership with the Boston Public Health Commission. Through book groups, speakers and workshops, families will be welcomed into the library, crossing language barriers, racial divisions and socioeconomic differences to encourage friendships and coping strategies.
