These books are available for checkout by parents. Some of the useful titles in this collection include:

  • The Hurried Child: Growing up Too fast, Too Soon,
  • Reviving Ophelia: Saving the Selves of Adolescent Girls.

Our newest additions include:

  • Raising a Son and Raising Daughter both by Don Elium, who was a previous Brown Bag Lunch speaker.
