The KL Library

A Note from the Director

    For many parents today, the two biggest challenges are often marital relationships and the raising of children. With this in mind, the Kids’ League would like to offer a library of books to help the interested parents in this regard. The two main categories will be marriage and raising children.


    We have selected some secular books as well as some faith-based books on these topics. Some of the books we have read ourselves and others have been recommended to us. As always, parents must select books that are in agreement with their personal philosophies.

     Books will be loaned for 1 month and renewable for an additional month if needed. There will not be an overdue fine, but you may receive a friendly reminder should a book be overdue after the second month.


        The Library is located in the church library just off the main foyer and a simple sign-out sheet will be next to the books.

If you have any questions you may email us, or speak to one of the staff in the office.

We hope you enjoy!

A practical guide to understanding teens, from bestselling author and youth advocate Josh Shipp. Harvard’s Center on the Developing Child found that every kid who succeeds in the face of adversity has had at least one committed relationship with a supportive adult. But Josh Shipp didn’t need Harvard to understand that. Once an at-risk foster kid, he was facing down a bleak future that was likely to include prison or homelessness—until he met the grown-up who changed his life. Enter Rodney, the foster parent who refused to quit on Shipp and finally got him to believe in himself. Now, in The Grown-Up’s Guide to Teenage Humans, Shipp shows us how to be that sort of caring adult in a teenager’s life. Stressing the need for mutual respect, trust, and encouragement, he identifies three key mindsets crucial to understanding teens. He breaks down the distinct phases of teenage life, examining the challenges at each phase, and offers revelatory stories that take us deep inside the teen brain.
