During the month of October, the Marshall Public Library will be helping to put a stop to the cycle of abuse. As part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the library will host a display raising awareness of the issues of child abuse and domestic violence. The exhibit will feature books that can help people in all stages of the abuse cycle including healing, as well as materials about abuse prevention and contact information for local agencies dedicated to stopping the violence. “According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, one in three women and one in four men have been physically abused by an intimate partner,” said Amy Campbell, Reference Librarian at the Marshall Public Library. “Meanwhile, according to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, an estimated 702,000 children were victims of abuse and neglect in Federal Fiscal Year 2014.” The display is a partnership between the Marshall Public Library, Family Services Alliance, and Bright Tomorrows Child Advocacy Center.
