Talk to a librarian!
Our children’s department staff are professionally trained in both library skills and early childhood education. If you need some help encouraging your child to read, talk with our librarians to get some tailored recommendations. Or if you need specialized resources as a caregiver, we can help you find that, too.
Books with call numbers beginning with PT mean that you’ll find them in our Parent/Teacher section. This is a specially selected group of books to meet the needs of caregivers who need resources on learning activities, literacy skills, and curriculum ideas. It’s perfect for homeschooling families and anyone who needs some inspiration for teaching!
