The Oregon Branch of the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library has teamed with Oregon Community and Family Coalition (OCFC) to provide "Reaching Out," a special resource display designed for parents, guardians and teens dealing with a range of issues from drug prevention, depression and family dynamics.
OCFC is an anti-drug coalition comprised of businesses, organizations and individuals dedicated to reducing substance abuse among youth, promoting positive choices and strengthening families.
The resource display at Oregon Branch, located at 3340 Dustin Rd., provides books and DVDs available for checkout, along with free pamphlets and resource guides that patrons can take with them. At the display, patrons and visitors can also find OCFC posted information on upcoming events, and news of informational meetings for parents and other family activities.
Tana M. Schiewer, executive director of OCFC, said the community of Oregon can benefit significantly from the placement of the materials in the library. "I believe that this is a productive use of Library space and the display serves as an extension of OCFC. We like to refer to the display as a resource center within the walls of the Oregon Branch Library," she added.
