Family Support Council offers library to public

Staff reports

In spite of technology, television, computers and the Internet, books and the printed word have always been the most reliable source of information and reference. The Family Support Council offers the Lynne Memorial Library to the general public. “The library is an excellent source of information and reference on subjects that are important to today’s families,” said Tammy Taylor of The Family Support Council.

The library includes over 500 books and videos in 15 different categories, including pregnancy and childbirth, effective parenting from birth to 18 years, parenting special needs children, marriage enrichment, single parenting divorce, grand-parenting, domestic violence and sexual assault.

Most often the library includes “Your Baby and Child” by renowned author Penelope Leach, as well as her “Helping Your Child Sleep Through the Night.”

“Parents, Teens and Boundaries” is one of the recommended books for parents of teenagers. “Power Parenting for Children with ADD/ADHD” has been very helpful for parents dealing with ADHD.

Many books by well known authors and experts in their field such as Dr. James Dobson, Delores Curran, Gary Smalley, Dr. Laura Schlessinger, Dr. Thomas Phelan, and Vicky Lansky can be found in the resource library.

The difficult issues of domestic violence and sexual assault are addressed in titles such as “When Love Becomes Anger,” “Violent No More,” “The Invisible Wound” and “I Never Called it Rape.”

All books and materials are available to be checked out for a two-week period.

The Family Support Council is open from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday through Friday 1255 Waterloo Lane, Suite A. Gardnerville.
