Put your feet up while you wait and relax in KidInclusive’s Family Resource Room. The Family Resource/Waiting room is situated directly across the hall from our main reception. If you have a particularly long wait and feel the need to relax and possibly explore the many books and videos stacked on the bookshelf, – visit our Family Resource Room and help yourselves. Books and videos may be signed out and borrowed for up to 2 weeks at a time. A computer with a built in DVD player is also there for your use. Feel free to check it out!
