October is Anti-Bullying Month--Are You Ready to Take a Stand?

Cornered

October is Anti-Bullying Month. If you are a teen, kid, parent, teacher, or if you interact with any of these people, bullying probably has affected you somehow.

Bullying can take many forms, from teasing and spreading rumors about someone to physically hurting to exclusion to anonymous cyberbullying. Have you ever been bullied? Have you ever bullied someone? Have you ever stood by and not said something while someone was being bullied? Have you ever spoken up for someone?

Do you want to try some new music and not spend ANY money?  I'm talking free, folks!  Your tax dollars at work.

Yes, the Library has many CDs (22,085 titles today, to be exact) but that's not what I'm talking about right now.  Bet you didn't know we had streaming music that you can listen to day or night and never leave your home.
