International Overdose Awareness Day

August 31 is International Overdose Awareness Day. The library is working with the Westbrook Recovery Liaison Program to recognize and remember members in our community who have been lost to an overdose. We ask you to join us by decorating a square quilt in their memory. Materials are provided for and located on the 2nd floor of the library by the Reference Desk.

A finished quilt will be displayed in the community to reduce the stigma of substance use disorder and to raise awareness of overdose.

All decorated squares must either be returned to the library or to the Westbrook Public Safety Building (570 Main Street) by September 15, 2019.

If you have any questions, please call (207) 303-4009.
