Building Foundations
for Early Learning

Family Place Libraries build on the knowledge that family members and caregivers are every child’s first teachers by assisting with a new family centered library service. Play and Learn is an informal play date with library staff and resource specialists from within our community. Resource specialists will have knowledge in nutrition, growth, speech and hearing and music and movement.
