Library Grief Kits

Find Grief Kits in Area Libraries.

Local libraries partner with Grief’s Journey to provide resource kits that can be checked out like any library book. Each kit is filled with grief-related books and DVDs for youth and their adult caregivers. These kits are designed to provide grieving families additional support when faced with a loss. Two versions are available: child and teen. Ask your local librarian for the Grief’s Journey (a.k.a.Ted E. Bear Hollow) “Healing Hearts Kit” (Omaha Public Libraries) or “First Aid Kit for Grieving Hearts” (other library systems).

Consider purchasing one or let your library know! Kits are available for public or school libraries to adopt at any time. For $170 you can sponsor a “First Aid Kit for Grieving Hearts” for a library of your choice. Simply download and complete the order form, then return to Cathy Fox via mail, fax or email:
