We know that sometimes, the right words are hard to find.
With that thought in mind, in 2003 Spruce Run began our Library Campaign. That year during Domestic Violence Awareness Month we donated books and materials about abuse to every library in Penobscot County. A year later, the Maine Coalition to End Domestic Violence picked up the initiative and it became a statewide effort.
Today, Spruce Run’s Knowledge Empowers Campaign is thriving. Our goal is to make information, outreach materials, and resources accessible to every child, teen and adult in Penobscot County. Recognizing the pervasive nature of the problem and the widespread need for information, we donate books that appeal to many different audiences–including children, teens, and adults–and that cover many different topics.
Throughout October, participating public, private, and school libraries–nearly 50 throughout the county–display the selected books and materials. Look for the 2012 books this October, or check your local library’s catalog for previous years’ donations.
