The Rubinstein Library at Cincinnati Children's is the place for families to turn for extensive health-related information on developmental and behavioral issues and related children’s health conditions.

We are a free service open to parents, patients, staff, professionals, trainees, students and the community. Accurate, up-to-date information is available for staff in our research library and in easy-to-understand language in our parent library. We have trained staff available to help you.

We have a toy library that provides a variety of educational toys and software to help develop skills such as pre-reading, hand-eye coordination and large and fine motor skills. We also provide switch-adapted toys for children with disabilities such as vision impairment, coordination problems, attention issues and developmental disabilities.

The Rubinstein Library is located in the Division of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics.
