Celebrating Families

 Here at the library, we celebrate families year round, but what better time than the holiday season to celebrate the diversity of the families in our community? From single parent homes and foster families to traditional two-parent homes, families come in many forms. As society's definition of family evolves, so does the literature. Favorite authors like Todd Parr and Patricia Polacco, to name a few, have published works depicting diverse families. Check out our list to find fun books that celebrate and explore families!
