Parent's Corner: Safety Zone!

The Downtown library has a shelf in the Youth Department known as the Parent Shelf. On this shelf you’ll find a variety of parent-child related books on a multitude of topics- including everything from ABCs to tantrums to potty training to home schooling. These books are available for checkout, and can be found in the catalog when searching “parent shelf,” if you’d like to have one sent to a branch of your choice.

One topic that might be of interest is child safety, both in the home and in the community. We’ve got books that cover everything from bike helmets to baby proofing to stranger danger. Check out such titles as:

SafeKids 101: Preparing kids to stay safe at home and in the community

Protecting the gift: keeping children and teenagers safe (and parents sane)

The safe child book: a commonsense approach to protecting children and teaching children to protect themselves


We need to keep them safe.
