Toronto Public Library shedding light on Seasonal Affective Disorder

“Two white lamps that look like props from a sci-fi film sit in the common area of the Brentwood Library. But they’re anything but common or the stuff of science fiction.They’re light therapy lamps, designed to mimic the sun and treat Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), a type of depression that some people experience during the dark winter months. They’re part of a Toronto Public Library pilot project that aims to help people ward off the winter blues while they read.”These lamps help people combat the lack of sunlight we suffer from here in the winter,” said Tiziano Vanola, the  branch head of the Brentwood library, which is located near Bloor Street West and Islington Avenue.” (via CBC News)
