Date: Thursday, January 31, 2013
Time: 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM, registration at 8:30 AM

Presenter: Marisa Conner

Libraries have a new understanding of how our role in supporting lifelong learning begins with the very youngest child. Our challenge is to design spaces as well as activities to most effectively support learning for emergent learners. Play is essential to children’s healthy cognitive, physical, social, and emotional development. When our early literacy spaces invite play along with reading, we model effective strategies for family literacy.

Come learn how to engineer a play space, incorporate play into existing children’s spaces and activities at the library, and select appropriate active toys – on any budget.

Registration deadline for this workshop is January 22.  The registration form and full information is at
