Grief Resource Lending Library

The Lee Hamilton Grief Lending Library is an integral part of the Academy. Our library, located at Hamilton's on Westown Parkway, (3601 Westown Parkway, West Des Moines), houses an extensive collection of books, periodicals, brochures and videos, for all ages, pertaining to issues of grief and loss.

The library is open every day that Westown is open, typically Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 4:00pm, and materials may be checked out for a two-week period.
