Siskin Lending Library

PROVIDING RESOURCES AND GUIDANCE TO FAMILIES AND PROFESSIONALS in the region

Our free lending library is a place where families and professionals can find current resources on parenting and educating children with special needs. The library houses a growing collection of more than 5,000 books, DVDs, videos and periodicals on child development and disability-related topics. Our staff can help you research a topic, select the right books, browse our library catalog or use one of our computer work stations.


ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY 

The lending library now offers assistive technology.   Assistive technology (AT) is any item that is used to increase, maintain, or improve the functional capabilities of children with disabilities. Please contact the Siskin Lending Library for additional information about the AT devices available for check-out. For more information on assistive technology click here.

RESOURCES NOW AVAILABLE IN DOWNTOWN LIBRARY


In addition to the plethora of resources available for families at our location, we recently partnered with the downtown branch of the Chattanooga Public Library to create the Siskin Children's Institute Parent Corner. Located on the 2nd floor, parents can now find helpful information on a number of topics related to early childhood development and disabilities.
