Parenting Collection

Our Parenting Collection has new books, videos, brochures, and pamphlets on raising children and helping your kids to love reading!

Adults working with children or interested in children's literature will find materials addressing the needs of children in the Parenting Collection in the Children's Room. This collection 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.

As a special service to caregivers, the Kalona Public Library offers BIG BOOKS that are available to check out at the front desk.  If you contact us a week in advance, we can also prepare a storytime kit, which includes books, crafts, songs, and fingerplays.

This resource is supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act as administered by State Library of Iowa.
