The following books are available for parents (and staff) to use as resources. Some books are located on the shelf outside Mary's office door as well as in Mary's office that you will be able to check out. You may find books that you agree or disagree with, that are helpful, or not very helpful. Each person will have a different perspective or response to the author/s. Please use the card file box on the bookcase just outside the office door to "check out" the books you take. Cross your name off of the card when you return the book.
