ParentLink Library

Looking for information about parenting? The ParentLink Library has over 1600 titles in its collection for parents and professionals. Any adult resident of Missouri can borrow materials from the Library simply by calling 1-800-552-8522 and requesting the items from a ParentLink staff person. Loan library services are free. We do ask that customers pay return postage and insurance to get the items back to us.


You can also email us your library requests.


The materials cover topics like general parenting concerns, developmental stages, teen pregnancy, substance abuse, discipline techniques, toilet training, children with special needs, and grandparents raising grandchildren.


These materials include books, videotapes, DVDs, and curricula. We have a selection of materials for African-American, Hispanic/Latino American, and Native American parents. We acquire new titles regularly.

Parents, counselors, teachers, ministers, foster parents, neighbors, and grandparents can all take advantage of the materials available through the ParentLink Library. If you have a question or concern about children, we may have just the information you are looking for.
