Grief Support Library

If you or a loved one has experienced a loss, you may be looking for a resource along the grief journey. Altru Health System, in collaboration with the Grand Forks Public Library, has created a collection of recommended grief resources, "Altru Recommends," for all ages.


"Altru Recommends" Book Display

To locate the items, look for the Altru display in the library. All the books on the recommended list will have an Altru sticker on the front. To see which titles are
available, you may also search the online catalog for “Altru” at the Grand Forks Public Library's website.

What if I’m not a Grand Forks County Resident?

All Altru patients and families, regardless of location, will have access to the grief collection, including e-books and e-audiobooks. As part of the collaboration, the library will waive the $15 out-of-county fee for one year (mention you were referred to the program by this website or a brochure). For more information, please contact the Grand Forks Public Library 701.772.8116.
