This grant will allow Stoughton Public Library to focus on significant social issues that have an effect on every individual and family in our community. This collection will be a relevant for a very wide audience.
The theme, "life transitions", was chosen to meet current and ongoing informational needs and interest of both the Stoughton area and wider South Central library community.
The areas (or subjects) covered within "life transitions" will include birth, marriage, children, teens, retirement, divorce, health and wellness, death, job loss, relocation, homelessness and other topics.
Information and resources on these subjects is especially relevant for communities such as Stoughton where residents are experiencing major employee layoffs, financial strain, and limited family resources, as well as the events of everyday life.
