Sangre de Cristo Collection on Death, Dying and Grieving

The Pueblo City-County Library District is very happy to announce a new service to our community that will kick-off later this month.  The library district in collaboration with Sangre de Cristo Hospice & Palliative Care will unveil a special collection of materials on death, dying and grieving.  The collection will be available on the second floor of the Rawlings Library.  We are honored to provide these books, DVDs and more to the members of our community.  Coping with death and loss is among the most important times of life, and this collection will feature authors and experts to help individuals better understand and deal with this.

The Sangre de Cristo Hospice & Palliative Care non-profit donated all of the materials in the collection.  In addition, members of their staff have agreed to present a series of programs at the library on matters of importance to individuals dealing with death, dying and grieving.  These programs will include topics such as hospice care, coping with loss, and children and bereavement.

It is the hope of the library district that in offering this special collection of materials and programs in partnership with Sangre de Cristo Hospice & Palliative Care that it will aid individuals of all ages and backgrounds in dealing with death, dying and grieving.

For more information on this new opportunity, please contact Carol Rooney, Managing Librarian for Rawlings Library Reference and Readers Advisory Services, at 562-5624.
