Family Place Libraries
What is Family Place?
A Family Place Library is a center for early childhood information, parent education, emergent literacy, socialization and family support. Family Place builds on the knowledge that good health, early learning, parent involvement and supportive communities play a critical role in young children's growth and development. Each Family Place Library features the following core elements:
- A bright, colorful and welcoming space for young children and their parents.
- A collection of books, toys, videos, music and other materials for babies, toddlers, parents and service providers
- Access to resources that emphasize emergent literacy, reading readiness and parent education.
- Developmentally appropriate programming, such as baby and toddler storytimes for younger children and their parents.
- Outreach to new and underserved populations.
- The Parent-Child Workshop is a five-week workshop featuring local professionals, such as nutritionists, speech and language therapists and child development experts, who serve as resources for parents.
The first three years of a child's life lay the foundation for learning. Get the tools and resources you need to give your child the best possible start.
