Have a playdate with the library!
Join us to spend time together with your child, make new friends, and talk one-on-one with child development specialists at our Family Place™ Playgroup. Due to the ongoing construction, there are no in-person workshops at Harrington Library. View information about past virtual playgroup sessions here on the blog, and check our programming calendar for registration information for upcoming in-person sessions at Schimelpfenig Library.
Raising children can spark lots of questions. What should you expect? Is that normal? Who can help? The Family Place™ Playgroup offers caregivers the chance to ask important questions from child development experts in our community one-on-one.
Each playgroup is a five-week session of fun, play-based activities for toddlers aged zero to three and their grownups. Explore a variety of toys, books, and hands-on activities each week. Play is an important part of your child’s learning and helps build social skills, literacy skills, vocabulary, and more.
Weekly meetings will each cover a new topic, including early literacy and general parenting, music and movement, speech, hearing and language development, child development and nutrition. Invite your friends to join you, or make some new friends and share new experiences together.
