The Seventy Times Seven Project will be showing the documentary "Life in Occupied Palestine" on October 21 at 7:00 p.m. with a discussion concerning the status of Palestinian Christians to follow. The movie will be screened at Darien Library and members of the public are welcome.
There are so many pressures on kids today - from school, family, friends, and teammates - that it can be difficult for them to simply get through the day without stress or anxiety. As a community, we want nothing but the best experiences for the children in our lives, and when we know of a child who could benefit from a little guidance, we want to ask for help. We just might not know who to ask.
Beginning Wednesday, March 19th, from 1pm to 2pm, we're going to do something new and very exciting at Darien Library. On every third Wednesday of the month, Susan Jasko, clinical coordinator of Darien's Child Guidance office, will be available in the Children's Room to answer any questions you may have about mental health and related services available to Darien children and their families. Child Guidance is a non-profit, community-based organization that provides assistance with child, adolescent, and family therapy, educational workshops, and parenting consultations, among other services.
So in between browsing for books or checking out the dvds at the Library, stop by the Children's Room to talk to Susan. If you've got questions, we've certainly got answers!
