Parental Resources

Library Collections

We offer a wide range of books, magazines, and DVDs of interest to parents of infants through teens.

Parenting magazines and books are located in the children’s area to allow you to browse while your child looks for books, colors, or plays at our train table.

Tumble Books
TumbleBooks is an online resource sponsored by the library.  Books come to life online. Listen and follow along to picture books, math stories, chapter books or non-fiction books for kids from kindergarten through grade six.


Building your child's literacy skills with 1000 Books before Kindergarten



Parents and teachers know that children who are read to at an early age become confident, capable readers. Reading to your child just twenty minutes each day helps encourage language skills, stimulate curiosity, and prepare for success in school.

Have a child with a specific interest like race cars or horses? Need help finding the right book to interest your young reader? Have a school project deadline coming up? Just ask and we will be happy to help you locate just the right books either on our shelves or available through the South Central Library System.
