Family Programs

Family Programs at the library include a variety of activities designed to engage every member of the family from baby to adult. Family Programs vary by location and may include Pajama Storytimes, Saturday Family Storytimes, Super Sundays, multigenerational programs, craft programs and more! Typically lasting 30-60 minutes, these programs give families the opportunity to benefit from a shared library experience by encouraging them to participate in stories, fingerplays, songs, and other activities together

Family PlayShop

The Family PlayShop is a one-on-one program for children ages 6 months to 4 years and their parents/guardians. Brothers and sisters under the age of 5 are welcome. This four to five week, one hour program involves a librarian and a community resource professional to answer informal questions about your child and provide materials. A special room or area is arranged with developmentally appropriate toys and activities, providing an inviting and inclusive environment for young children and their parents/guardians.

The Family PlayShop combines early childhood education, parent support, and innovative library services in an exciting and attractive program. This program supports the infants-toddlers PA Learning Standards for Early Childhood and also serves as a recreational and social vehicle for families with very young children. The overall goal of the Family PlayShop is to develop a family-centered environment in public libraries. It is designed to expand library services for families and children and to integrate library services into local efforts to build family-centered communities.
