Now available at the library-- "Hacking Your Brain: Stress Relief" kits for kids! The last 2 years have put a lot of stress on our children. The Utah STEM Action Center and the Utah State Library received a grant to put together these awesome stress relief kits. Geared toward 2nd through 4th grade, these kits are meant to help combat the stress put on children since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Each kit focuses on movement, mindfulness, deep breathing, and creation; all scientifically proven to help lower stress. Books in the kits, such as Breathe Like a Bearby Kira Willey and Good Morning Yogaby Mariam Gates, teach kids to flex their mind and muscles and to be calm, focused, imaginative, and relaxed. Activities include movement, mindfulness, and creation activity cards, learning to crochet, a jump rope, a journal, and lots more. Additionally, some of the items included with the kit are available for children to keep, such as a brain stress ball and a tin of thinking putty, a list of these items is provided with each kit.

"How has the library made a difference? I see it in my life the way working for the library is changing mine. I came here to ask for a room to teach my class of Youth Mental Health First Aid. In a brief period, I found how committed this Library is changing and transforming the lives of all they serve! I enjoy helping people and under this position I bring the resources to the Latino community, and this makes me incredibly happy. I wish I had American Fork Library in my life when I came to Utah back in 2000."
