Help for mental health

Several members of the board of the Cayuga County affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness presented a $600 check to Seymour Library in Auburn March 31 to support the purchase of mental health-related materials. They will include e-books and audiobooks, as well as hard copies for children and adults. The materials will also be accessible for free through the Finger Lakes Library System to all libraries in the county. The affiliate continues to seek donations to help it purchase the Discover Backpacks collection of books and activities that can help people develop good mental health practices. Donations can be sent to NAMI Cayuga County, in care of Bart Wasilenko, P.O. Box 719, Weedsport, NY 13166.
