KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – Knox County Public Library’s staff often recommend books and other resources to parents and guardians that are specifically for kids. Librarians announced this week they are introducing a new series focused on picture books that deal with tough topics, such as bullying, bereavement, and more. Soon, they hope to add even more topics.

The books are meant to open doors of communication for kids who may have experienced trauma. To check out a book, visit the branch of the library nearest you and apply for a library card. Proof of residency within Knox County is required.
