Family Place Libraries™ is a network of children’s libraries nationwide which believe that literacy begins at birth and that libraries can help build healthy communities by nourishing healthy families. Family Place Libraries feature:
• Specially designed spaces
• Programs for ages 0 – 5
• Materials and resources for parents
• Family support services
Eagle Public Library and its Family Place Library also offer collections of toys that are developmentally appropriate for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers. Research shows that play fosters a variety of skills that children need: social, physical, intellectual, creative, and emotional. Through play, children express feelings, communicate, build imagination and vocabulary, and develop eye-and-hand coordination; all vital steps in their journey toward reading and writing.
