Parent's Shelf

A special collection just for parents and caregivers.

    If your library has a parent's shelf describe it here. Include what is on the shelf (books, DVDs, pamphlets) Below is an example from Bettendorf Public Library:

    Adults working with children or interested in children's literature will find materials addressing the needs of children on the Parent's Shelf in the Youth Department. This collection includes books on topics that need adult guidance (for example: new siblings, death, divorce, discipline). It also includes resources for selecting age-appropriate literature and curriculum guides for teachers and caregivers.

    The collection includes works written at a child's level as well as resources for adults interested in learning more about specific topics.
