Literacy Library Playrooms
0-5 years

Play today, prosper tomorrow

Family Connections literacy playrooms are designed to support development of school readiness skills through interactive adult-child play.

Each playroom is an imaginative, hands-on, space for parents and children ages 0 thru 5. For example, our library playrooms feature carefully chosen play materials that give parents a perfect chance to help their child learn counting, sorting, matching and much more!

Our playrooms stimulate children’s natural curiosity to discover and explore, and help them master fundamental skills necessary for school success.
