Sensitive Subjects by Location

  • Sensitive Subjects by Location

We are here to help, but we know that some subjects are difficult for you to ask us about. The Brookline Public Library created this list, which they are allowing us to share, to help you with whatever you are going through.

At the Parker Memorial Library these subjects can be found in the Non-Fiction section on the 2nd floor. Please feel free to ask for general directions or specific locations of materials at the Reference Desk, also on the 2nd floor.
