What Can I Learn Here?

This guide will provide a place for teens to find helpful information on the topics that matter most to them.  Information is given for specific health topics such as diet and exercise, mental health issues, substance abuse, and surviving those stressful teen years.  Thanks to a LSTA EZ Literacy & Lifelong Learning Grant provided by the State Library of North Carolina, Gunn Memorial Public Library will be providing health and wellness programming throughout the year.  Check this site for a list of programs geared specifically for teens.  Also included are links to national and local hot-lines and websites to provide more information.  Last but not least, we will provide book recommendations based on the health topics we cover.  We hope this information will be helpful to you.  If you have questions, my contact information is available to you on the right of this page.

 

Think It Over

Health is not simply the absence of sickness.

FYI

LSTA funds awarded by the State Library of North Carolina are made possible through funding from the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act as administered by the State Library of North Carolina, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources. The LSTA grant program administered by the State Library of North Carolina funds library projects across the state that advance literacy and lifelong learning, expand access to library resources and expertise, promote partnerships and collaboration, and digitize materials important to the cultural heritage of North Carolina.

 

The Institute of Museum and Library Services is the primary source of federal support for the nation’s 122,000 libraries and 17,500 museums. The Institute's mission is to create strong libraries and museums that connect people to information and ideas. Through the LSTA Grants to States program IMLS provides funds to State Library agencies using a population-based formula. State libraries may use the appropriation to support statewide initiatives and services; they may also distribute the funds through competitive subgrants to public, academic, school, special, and research libraries.  To learn more about the Institute, please visit www.imls.gov.
