Welcome to Family Place

Families need access to early childhood information and socialization opportunities and this program transforms the children’s department into a family friendly environment where literacy, early childhood development, parent education and community support are encouraged.  While children engage in informal play with educational toys, STEM building materials, and art activities the adults have an opportunity to talk with other parents and community resource professionals.  Families with children from birth to 5 years old are welcome to join us on Monday mornings for an informal, play-based program.  This morning families will meet with one another while enjoying coffee, juice, and cookies.  We will conclude with a Rhythm & Rhyme Circle Time of stories, action songs, and movement exercises.
