"Loving in Loss" Storytime

In honor of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, the Smithsburg Library will host a grief-informed Storytime. With the guiding hand of Maria Reed, Hospice counselor and grief educator, Miss Laura has chosen a selection of gentle books that validate the complex emotions surrounding Loss.

This program is intended for ANYONE AT ANY AGE who lost a baby close to them, whether recently or long ago. The books will range in simplicity and are appropriate for young and old alike.

Afterwards everyone is invited to create a memorial rock for their loved one, connect with others, and browse community resources represented by grief professionals from Hospice, Labor of Love, Hope through Birth and other organizations.

**Storytime should not be considered a substitute for mental health services.**
