For Parents & Guardians

Parenting Collection

Our parenting collection includes subjects that range from newborn care to teenage development as well as robust resources for homeschool families. The collection is located in the Children’s Room on the 3rd floor of the Main Library and is further supported by the adult non-fiction collection on the 2nd floor.


The library offers a variety of eBooks and eAudio available for free using your library card through Libby/OverDrive and Hoopla. Visit MPL’s YouTube Instructional Video Channel to learn how to use these services.


Bookshare is an ebook library that makes reading easier. People with reading barriers like dyslexia, blindness, and physical disabilities can read in ways that work for them with a huge collection of titles in audio, audio + highlighted text, braille, and other formats. Bookshare is FREE for all qualified U.S. students and schools, and less than $1 per week for all other members.
