The children’s department has a separate Parenting Section, where you will find helpful materials and guides dealing with popular parenting issues, potty training, bullying etc.  We also have an Early Literacy Center with special materials and hand-outs written just for parents of babies and toddlers.  Please feel free ask any of the librarians for help or guidance in finding or choosing a book.
