Russell Library is pleased to announce the addition of a series of Parenting Bags to the Children’s Department. Each bag is focused on a particular topic in child rearing such as breastfeeding or getting the child to sleep, and contains both books and DVDs which address these topics. Bags are available in either English or Spanish and circulate for three weeks. These bags are funded, in part, by a generous grant from the Community Foundation of Middlesex County and we thank them.
