Welcome to the Valley Hospice Foundation (VHF) Grief Library, a pilot project offering both physical and online resources to borrowers in Nova Scotia.
Library services will commence on September 2, 2024.

Our big bold vision for the future is a Library that sits at the heart of a strong grief and bereavement community in the Annapolis Valley. It will be a space that allows connection and personal growth, a collection that serves grievers in the province, and services that complement the work of other agencies such as NSH, NSHPCA, and grief and bereavement specialists in the region.

Ways to Give

Adopt a Book
Until September 1, visit our Wish List at to adopt a book for the VHF Grief Library collection. Thank you for your gift of healing grief together.

All adoptable books are $20 or less. We do not issue tax receipts for these adoptions.


We welcome monetary donations to the Valley Hospice Foundation, which help support the Grief Library.

The Grief Library does not accept donated books. For all libraries, used book donations create a significant amount of work; ours is a volunteer-led library without the space or resources to manage book donations. Materials left unannounced at the Library office, Valley Hospice or VHF office will be disposed of at our discretion and not returned to you.
