The Lost and Found library started as a resource for addictions material but has expanded to include information on suicide, divorce, health, violence, parenting, and a variety of other topics for all ages. As a licensed counselor, she found what she affectionately refers to as the “golden nugget” of Moorhead.
“I always purchased my own materials” said Mary Jo. Because she does not have to buy each individual item, she’s able to better help those she serves in the FM area by providing them with a rich set of resources. Mary Jo’s story reflects that of other professionals in the area, who rely on the resources at Lost and Found.
But Mary Jo would be the first to tell you that the resources at Lost and Found are not just for professionals. At over a quarter of a million dollars’ worth of resources, the Lost and Found Library is a unique asset for just about anyone. Whether you’re a child, a parent, grandparent, teacher, business person, or just concerned citizen, you can find something useful for you or a loved one.
It’s surprising what can be found on the shelves. Stop by; be surprised!
