This is where the staff of the Reeve Foundation is sharing up-to-the-minute information and putting some context around the news affecting the spinal cord injury and paralysis community. Not to mention insight into what's going on here at the Foundation.
Feel free to comment and offer suggestions. We'll respond.
The Paralysis Resource Center Library was conceived by Dana Reeve, who had a vision of creating a one-stop destination where anyone living with paralysis could gather information and have their questions answered.
Opened in May 2002, the lending library is housed at the Reeve Foundation's headquarters in Short Hills, N.J., and loans content to people all over the country.
With multi-media content continually added each year, people of all ages have access to a variety of information related to paralysis. Parents and children can access information in the expanded children's section, including videos and children's books, ranging from picture books of young children in wheelchairs to stories in which a family member is paralyzed. The books are designed to prompt discussion among children and help them see that they are not alone.
Individuals can borrow materials free of charge through interlibrary loans or directly from the Library, which also provides return postage for user convenience. New books and videos are constantly being added.
