•                                               Parent Lending Library

    It seems that when our children were younger, there were many literary resources available to parents to help us guide our children through their developmental stages, and offer us volumes of expertise when we did not know what to do.  As our children grow, and they become more complex, we as parents are still looking for resources to help us with our children. The Parent Lending Library is here to help fill that need. The Parent Lending Library contains books for parents, and books for parents to read with children, on a wide array of topics to help guide and nurture your children.  The Parent Lending Library is located in the Guidance Office, and books can be signed out at any time by simply coming into the Guidance Office and signing the card inside the book with your name and phone number.  Below is a list of the books currently available in the Parent Lending Library, arranged by topic.
