Come see the wonderful resources we have available for parents and teachers in the Educational Materials area in the READ Center at Central Library.  We have a special resources area, magazines, seasonal displays, new books, and a quiet place to work.  Some of the most recent new books: 

BEING THE OTHER ONE:  GROWING UP WITH A BROTHER OR SISTER WHO HAS SPECIAL NEEDS.  Able siblings commonly struggle with feelings of isolation, grief, anxiety, and anger - feelings that can arise in childhood and can persist into adulthood.  Includes practical advice, support, helpful books, organizations, and websites.

SONGS AND RHYMES READERS THEATRE FOR BEGINNING READERS.   Gerades 1-2, with scripts built around 24 rhymes such as "The Eensy, Weensy Spider", "The Farmer in the Dell", and "I'm a Little Teapot".

BOOKS THAT DON'T BORE 'EM:  YOUNG ADULT BOOKS THAT SPEAK TO THIS GENERATION. Grades 5 and up.  Books for read-alouds, literature circles, independent reading, author biographies and interviews.  Thematic book lists.
