Parent Teacher Collection

The library supports parents, teachers, preschool and daycare leaders and care-givers with adult books which relate primarily to children's collections and services. The Parent-Teacher Collection includes resources on storytime and ECE curriculum, using literature in the classroom, and books which relate child development to literacy. This supplements the large parenting and education sections in adult non-fiction.

If your class is working on a special theme or topic, librarians will gather a selection of fiction and non-fiction titles. Please contact your local branch a day or two before you’d like to pick up your batch of books.
