Mamie Doud Eisenhower Public Library to become Family Place Library as part of a National Leadership Grant!
Read more about our program in the Broomfield Enterprise article.
In 2012 The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) awarded the Middle Country Public Library a National Leadership Grant to support their Family Place Libraries initiative. Twenty-eight libraries in 7 states were selected be a part of this grant and our Children's Library was one of them! The grant money was distributed over the next three years to fund staff training, site visits and project implementation. Middle Country Library staff worked with our library to implement and evaluate Family Place Libraries, a library-based early childhood and family support service model. This multi-phase program focuses on parents and caregivers as first teachers, is organized around the developmental needs of the child, and links library services with other regional and local family support agencies. The program emphasizes libraries as key institutions within the early childhood and family support community and partners in the promotion of healthy child and family development. The goal is to develop lifelong learners while fostering home/library/community connections to provide community support for families with very young children.
Our Family Place Center
Children discover and practice new skills through purposeful play, and toys are their tools. The Family Place Center in the Children’s Library at Mamie Doud Eisenhower Public Library is a safe, fun environment where you and your young child can read, play and learn. This specially-designed space features materials for children and parents including board books, picture books, toys, puzzles, blocks and writing activities, all creating opportunities for little ones to explore. As your child’s first and most important teacher, these activities will help you build your child’s early literacy skills.
