April is National Humor Month!

National Humor Month was conceived as a means to heighten public awareness of the therapeutic value of humor. Laughter and joy – the benchmarks of humor – lead to improved well-being, boosted morale, increased communication skills, and an enriched quality of life.

It’s no coincidence that the month begins with April Fool’s Day, a day which has sanctioned frivolity and amusement for hundreds of years.

Humor as a tool to lift ailing spirits is an established notion supported by scientific research. The curative power of laughter and its ability to relieve debilitating stress and burnout may indeed be one of the great medical discoveries of our times.

The library is ready to keep you laughing all month with joke books, funny fiction, and great comedy films. Stop in and tell us a joke (a clean one) and maybe we will have one for you. For more information on National Humor Month visit http://www.humormonth.com/
