Staff from the Library's Youth & Outreach Services Department have developed a list of books and websites to address the issue of bullying. Visit this page for lists of picture books, chapter books, non-fiction, and books for adults: http://www.springfieldlibrary.org/reading/bullies.html All of these materials may be requested at your local library, or you may reserve them online by following the links to our catalog. You will also find links to websites appropriate for children, teens, and adults dealing with bullying.

Don't miss the DVD Stop Bullying Now! Take a Stand, Lend a Hand. It can be used in an anti-bullying campaign in a variety of settings. It includes 12 webisodes featuring school-age characters dealing with bullying episodes, five TV and two radio public service announcements to promote the campaign, and five video workshops developed for professionals in the education, health and safety, mental health, and law-enforcement fields who encounter and deal with bullying behaviors. The DVD is available at all Springfield City Library locations--
