Parent & Educator Resource Central

The Parent and Educator Resource Central collection started in 2018, with an initial grant from the Illinois State Library. In addition to books and kits at Lincoln Library, the PERC collection also offers downloadable and online resources.

All of the materials in the PERC collection meet one of three criteria:

  • Instructional material for teachers and parents
  • Behavioral material with practical applications
  • Educational philosophy with practical applications


General parenting, family health, family planning, pre-natal, and educational topics that don’t have immediate practical application can be found in non-fiction on the second floor.
