Lending Library

Northshore Families Helping Families houses an extensive Lending Library with topics ranging from education to health issues to special needs trusts. This library is available to families, educators, and other health professionals.

Thank you for visiting the virtual Lending Library. All of the items to check out are at our Families Helping Families Center but you can look through what we have ready for you to read, hear and see!

We also are always expanding our learning library. If you would like to donate any of your books that are specific to a disability or disability-related issue, we would love to include them once our Executive Director gives us the green flag to list it

Our mission is to provide the individualized services, information, resources, and support to positively enhance the independence, productivity and inclusion of individuals with disabilities.
