Spring Family Place Begins

Monday nights and Tuesday mornings from April 23 to May 22 famlies will be attending our Parent/Child workshops. The will meet with child development experts and discuss their concerns about nutrition, health and other parenting issues. Parents can talk to other parents with children of the same age. The library provides age appropriate games, toys and books for this program.

So if you are in the reference area during these times you may hear the children enjoying themselves while their parents are learning about community services available to them and getting answers to common parenting questions.

Thank you to the Friends of the Lucy Robbins Welles Library for co-sponsoring this event.
