New library collections will provide invaluable resource for families with children

A new range of books covering topics around parenting, childhood and childcare are now available for loan at two libraries in Buckinghamshire.

Parenting and Childcare Topics (PACT) is a unique collection of 170 different books designed to help parents and carers of children and young people to navigate a variety of topics from pregnancy, to dealing with complex emotions and situations, right up to approaching university. The books cover everything from general parenting tips to specific situations such as being separated parents or caring for a child with special educational needs and disabilities.

Many of the books are written directly for adults, but a number are also written for the children and young people, including books around bullying and puberty.

A variety of books on the topics of parenting and childcare are already available across all libraries in Buckinghamshire but the enhanced PACT series has been introduced in two of the biggest libraries as an additional resource, with the support of local business, Limitless Tutoring, who have sponsored the collections.

Clive Harriss, Buckinghamshire Council’s Cabinet Member for Culture & Leisure said: “Libraries are a fantastic place to find out more information about specific topics all under one roof and free to access. These new collections are a great example of the valuable resources you can find in your local library to help you with the many and varied challenges and pleasures of raising a family. The range of topics covered is phenomenal and they are sure to become an instant hit with parents, carers and children alike.”

Limitless Tutoring CEO and Founder Christopher Reeves said: “Limitless Tutoring Group is proud to be partnering with Buckinghamshire Libraries due to the shared vision and commitment we have to inspiring, empowering and educating our county’s young people ​for the future. Limitless Tutoring Group has always been and always will be a company with the community at heart, so I am overjoyed that this partnership has begun, and I look forward to supporting the libraries long into the future.”

The books can be loaned in the usual way and are identified by the PACT logo on the spine of each book.
