Materials and Resources for Parents

Our parenting collection covers every aspect of child rearing and parenting. Resources include books, DVDs, magazines and displays of current information for parents. Be sure to check out our online resources, including eBooks and eAudio materials.

Our Family Place Libraries

The Clark County, Las Vegas, Whitney and Windmill Libraries have all been designated a part of the network of Family Place Libraries featuring safe, fun environments where you and your young children can read, play and learn. These specially-designed spaces feature materials for children and parents including board books, picture books, toys, puzzles, blocks and drawing stations, all creating opportunities for little ones to explore. As your child's first and most important teacher, these activities will help you build your child's early literacy skills.

Fostering a Love of Books and Reading

1,000 Books before Kindergarten

A program designed to encourage parents of preschoolers to read 1,000 books with their child before they start school. Pick up a folder from any of our branches to participate in this self-directed, no-time-limit reading incentive program to set the stage for success in reading and in school.

Club Read

Our annual summer reading club fosters the love of reading, and participating families receive special incentives. In addition, there are plenty of opportunities to attend fun, family-friendly programs for free!

Every Child Ready to Read

Our branches incorporate early literacy skills into all of our programs for preschoolers, while modeling for their caregivers the early literacy practices of singing, talking, reading, playing and writing.
