The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation Paralysis Resource Center
Library is composed of books, videos (both VHS and DVD), CD-ROMs, and
magazines. The collection has over 5,000+ items most of which may be
checked out. Topics include any of the various causes of paralysis like
MS, ALS, stroke, spinal cord injury, Transverse Myelitis, etc. There
are also materials on secondary conditions like bowel and bladder
management, pain, and spasticity. There is an extensive collection of
autobiographies of people living with these conditions as well as works
of fiction that include characters with paralysis. There are also books
and videos appropriate for children of various ages.
Materials may be checked out either through interlibrary loan
or direct loan. To get an interlibrary loan, one would go to their
local public library and ask the staff for help in getting the
materials. For those who prefer to have materials mailed directly to
their home, they can click below for an order form. All loans are free
(even return postage is included) and are for 30 days.
