Lending Library

The More Resilient Minnesota Lending Library has been developed to allow all Collaborative members an opportunity to borrow resources that help expand knowledge and understanding of NEAR (Neurobiology, Epigenetics, ACEs, and Resilience) Science and ACEs. Our hope is to promote continuous community engagement, wisdom, and creativity by inspiring innovative and compassionate responses while building self-healing communities.
