Hi there, my name is Mel. I’m the new Library and Communication Coordinator for the Family Care Office (FCO). I can register new users, check-out books, and provide information about our various collections. I will be in the office on Fridays from 9 AM to 2 PM, if you have any questions, would like help with your selection or simply like to stop by and chat about books! Our office is located on the first floor of the Koffler Student Services Centre in between the U of T Bookstore and the Second Cup.
The FCO’s library is a great resource for many family-related matters, regardless of where you are at in your life at the moment. The book categories we currently have within the library are:
- Aboriginal Life and Culture
- Balancing Work and Family Life
- Child Development—Special Needs
- Conception, Pregnancy and New Parents
- Divorce and Bereavement
- Elder Care
- Fertility Issues
- Infant Care
- LGBTQIA+ Parenting
- Schools and Daycare
- Single Parenting
- Toddlers and Preschoolers.
Additionally, we have brochures that can provide you with some off-campus resources.
The FCO is a great place to visit by yourself and with your family. We have a selection of children’s books, and toys for young kids, to enjoy while you peruse the shelves. Through our library we hope you are able to discover some resources to assist you in managing your family responsibilities.
I hope to see you soon!
