I have the honor and privilege to be one of the librarians at PCAR/NSVRC in charge of ordering books. It’s amazing to me that someone would let me in charge of the books, but they do. I find it a thrilling challenge to purchase new, unique, and quality materials for our library. Women’s history is also a fascinating subject for me. I have always enjoyed learning about those who have come before me and those who continue to work tirelessly so that I and others can have a life closer to what we deserve.

Being a child or teenager in today’s society is hard. Society dictates how they should behave, what they should like, and who they should be with. Those pressures can especially impact adolescents when they aren’t conforming or don’t want to conform to unwritten ideals about gender roles. Thankfully, there are great resources available for those working with or loving kids questioning their gender identity. The NSVRC library has some helpful titles worth checking out. On behalf of LGBTQ Pride Month, I encourage you to take a look at these fabulous books.

Survivors, those who work in the field, and those close to these individuals, can benefit greatly from a variety of resources that can help our overall mental health.
