Safety book project expands to area libraries

Submitted By the Jenny Lin Foundation

In collaboration with the Castro Valley Library, the Jenny Lin Foundation recently established a safety book project aimed at helping young readers and adults learn to recognize and handle various safety issues including bullying and conflicts with others.

The success of the program prompted the foundation to expand it into the San Lorenzo and Union City library branches. Books covering a wide range of safety-related topics are now being added to these three Alameda County Library locations. Interested readers may search in the library catalog for these materials using the community tag "Jenny Lin Collection."

Established in Castro Valley following the 1994 murder of 14-year-old Jennifer Han-chi Lin, Jenny Lin Foundation has for more than 20 years organized fairs, workshops, and contests to educate the public about safety precautions for members of all ages.

The group offers a variety of online resources to help everyone stay safe anytime -- from fire, home hazard, boating and water safety to cyberbullying. For details, visit their website at https://jennylinfoundation.org/jennys-safety-links/.
