Child Care Resource & Referral
Recently at the library I helped a patron who was looking for child care. While the library cannot recommend a specific child care provider or opportunity, we can direct patrons to a local resource at Linn-Benton Community College: Family Connections. The Family Connections department offers a Child Care Resource & Referral service, as well as guides to help parents determine what to look for in a child care setting. Family Connections also offers parenting education. Additionally, Linn-Benton Community College provides resources, support, and education for child care providers in Linn and Benton counties. To find out more, check out the Family Connections website. To access the Parent Advice Line, call (541)917-4899 or 1(800)845-1363.
