Parenting Shelf

A collaboration between The Birth Circle and Athens County Public Libraries has created the new parenting shelf in the children’s area. We are thrilled this project has become a reality! Now many books from our lending library are available whenever the library is open. Next time you are with your kids at the Athens Library, you can check out books from this new shelf of parenting resources–without leaving the children’s area!
