Everyone needs and deserves hope.
The Retreat gives hope to those living with abuse.
With you, we are making a difference.
Books for Healing and Breaking the Silence
Leslie Morgan Steiner is a New York Times best-selling author of the book Crazy Love, a compelling exploration of what it feels like to fall in love with a deeply troubled, abusive man, and then to leave him. 

Books are a great resource for anyone who wants to learn more about domestic abuse, how to find support if you are in an abusive relationship, or be supportive of someone you know who is in an abusive relationship.

Getting Along Storytime
Wednesday, August 19 at 10 am
Children, parents, and caregivers are invited to join the The Retreat and Diana, the John Jermain Library’s Children’s Librarian, for this special monthly story time! We will be reading books on topics such as: lending a hand at home/how kids can help, acceptance, racism, bullying, celebrating individuality and more! This session’s book will be “Harvesting Friends / Cosechando Amigos.”

Please have crayons or markers and paper on hand so that children can participate in an art activity to go with the stories. At the end of the session there will be time to ask questions and/or comments for The Retreat’s Prevention Education Specialists.
Check out this video to see highlights of July’s story time program.

Sign on details at John Jermain Library.
