For Parents & Teachers

Pennsauken Free Public Library wishes to support parents and teachers by providing information on the development and education of children from infancy through young adulthood. To that end, the library maintains a parent-teacher collection that contains books on parenting, homeschooling, digital media in the classroom and curriculum outlines. We also aim to provide educational programs for the whole family. For more information, contact the Youth Services Librarian directly at 856-665-5959 ext. 6 or smiller@pennsaukenlibrary.org.
