If you suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder you are not alone. Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that’s related to changes in seasons. SAD typically begins and ends at about the same time every year. Some symptoms include feeling depressed, losing interest in activities you once enjoyed and low energy, just to name a few.
To combat SAD, light therapy can be used. Light Therapy, or spending time around SAD lamps may counteract the disorder. The library has two lamps; one in the quiet reading room and another in the main library for patron use. There are two additional lamps that can be checked out and taken home by using your library card. Stop by the library today and see if a SAD lamp can help you.
