Because parenting and teaching are two of the most important and most difficult jobs in the world, the library makes every effort to provide resources to support our parents and teachers. The Kids section at the Main Library includes a special parent/teacher collection with materials on a broad assortment of issues and interests. Topics include child development, activities to do with children, early literacy development ideas for parents and teachers, curriculum tie-ins, lesson plans by subject or theme, STEM activities, unit guides, parenting special needs children, behavior management for home and school, and games to play with children.
Interfiled with our parent/teacher titles are picture books covering similar topics such as emotions, starting school, new siblings, bullying, death, potty training, manners, and more. Titles for children have a light blue sticker over the spine label on the book.
For more information about the parent/teacher collection, visit the Main Library or call our Youth Services Department at 317.844.3363.
