Special Needs   Special Needs Collection

The library has an extensive collection of materials in our Special Needs collection. This collection is designed to assist all members of the community, including parents and family members, educators, therapists, social workers, and psychologists in understanding and addressing the issues of the disabled from infancy through adulthood. There are DVDs, videos, curriculum guides, periodicals, and books on these topics as well as many others. We also have flash cards and games which can be borrowed from the library.
