Multiethnic Families

You are your child’s most important teacher, and we’re here to help. Our Parenting Collection is full of materials about growth and development from birth through teen years. Our youth services librarians have expertise in early literacy, child development, and children and young adult literature. We are always available to help you find just the right book, program, or information. Please ask!

For fun learning at home, check out Themebags (topics like Rhyme Time, Reptiles, Potty, New Sibling etc.).  Visit WiserKids, a blog written by our youth services staff for early literacy information and tips, ideas for growing readers, and book and media recommendations for preschool and school age kids.

For fun in the community, check out our Cultural Pass to Adventure, a Discovery Kit, and more.

Join us for the 2020-2021 Parent Information Series
