Family Place Libraries: From One Long Island Library to the Nation


May 2013

Family Place Libraries are specially designed spaces in public libraries for parents and their young children. They work to build connections among neighbors, support the role of parents as children's first teachers, increase chances for successful early intervention and foster a lifelong love of reading and learning.

This article describes the beginnings of the now nationwide Family Place Libraries movement, beginning in the Middle County Public Library in Centereach, N.Y.
