The Children’s Library maintains a Parent/Teacher Collection which contains a variety of materials for home and classroom use.
Parents can find information on developmental stages of children, toilet training techniques, ideas for children’s parties for home and school, how to discuss the facts of life with your child, help in handling discipline issues, ideas and ways to help your child with homework, activities to do with children, and homeschooling ideas.
Teachers can find information on using the internet with students, curriculum ideas, materials to enhance the classroom experience, and multicultural materials. We can also put aside books for students to use for a special assignment, give tours of the Library, or visit your classroom.
