Thanks to the generosity of the May Court Club of Barrie we were able to provide both public libraries in Barrie this October with 12 books each on all aspects of epilepsy. It is our hope that these kits will bring awareness and understanding about the condition to the general public, and also help those living with epilepsy better understand their condition.
