Sacramento libraries help teens find self-help books quietly


The Sacramento Public Library is getting some attention for a great idea that makes it easier for teens to help themselves with problems like depression, abuse and eating disorders.

Justin Azevedo, a librarian at the Arcade branch put together a list with issues teenagers sometimes deal with but are difficult to talk about. Next to each topic is the code that leads you to a self-help book.

"Whether it's something as seemingly mild as acne or whether it's something more serious like being in an abusive relationship," Sacramento Public Library teen librarian Molly Milazzo said. "These are the kinds of topics, especially when you are young, that you want to be able to handle quietly."
