A Family Place

A Family Place Library is a center for early childhood information, parent education, emergent literacy, socialization and family support. Expanding the traditional role of children’s services, Family Place builds on the knowledge that good health, early learning, parental involvement and supportive communities play a critical role in young children’s growth and development. Components include:

* Collections of books, toys, music and multimedia materials for babies, toddlers, parents and service providers

* A specially designed, welcoming place within the children’s area for families with young children

*Developmentally appropriate programming for very young children and their parents
