Come Join the Family Place Fun at the Hawley Library

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 at the Hawley Public Library.

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 story times 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/caregivers.  Come and meet other caregivers with similar aged children.  The workshops are at 10:30 on Thursday mornings, November 5, 12, 19 and December 3, 10 and 17.  There are educational toys and a simple craft for your child to play and learn.

On November 19 professionals from Early Intervention will be available to share their knowledge about childhood development and speech.  Check our website www.waynelibraries.org/hawley or our Facebook page Hawley Public Library for updates on professionals to be scheduled for other dates.

In addition to Parent/Child Workshops the library offers story times for the first three weeks in November and the first three weeks in December.  The sessions are Tuesday at 10:30am, Wednesday at 1:00pm and Friday at 10:30 and include stories, songs, finger plays, activities and crafts.

"A library outranks any one thing a community can do to benefit its people. It is a never-failing spring in the desert." ~ Andrew Carnegie

Your gift will help the library serve its community in essential ways--through reading, technology, programs and comfortable space for all ages. There are also many ways to give--as a donor, as a volunteer, and in the form of a planned gift for the future. We thank you for your generosity and support!
