The Family Room Lending Library and Resource Center
Bring your family to enjoy the books, toys, and other resources provided while visiting other families, parent educators, and volunteers in the warm, home like atmosphere.

Screenings in overall development, language, hearing, and vision are yearly or upon request. The goal of a screening is to provide parents with information on the individual growth of their child and the early detection of potential problems that may effect later learning.
