Bullying remains a highly charged and emotional issue. The library will host two special events in October to highlight the topic. Watch the acclaimed documentary, Bully (PG-13), that looks at peer-to-peer bullying across America. Then, listen in and participate in a public discussion. Community guests will include a representative from the Shasta County Health and Human Services Agency, a parent, a middle school teacher who runs an anti-bullying campaign, and a student who overcame bullying. These events would be best suited for those 13 years and older.

National Literacy Month

One in ten people have symptoms of dyslexia, including slow or inaccurate reading, poor spelling, poor writing or mixing up similar words. Dyslexia is a language-based learning disability and contrary to some beliefs, it is not due to lack of intelligence or desire to learn. Many famous people have dyslexia but have not let it stop them from achieving their goals. Denver Broncoís player, Neil Smith, and Kinkoís founder, Paul Orfalea, are just two examples. To read their stories, and access a list of both fiction and nonfiction library resources about dyslexia, visit our Dyslexia Resources page.
