The Power of Play: Its Impact on Literacy and Learning. Created for the 2008 Family Place National Symposium.


The Family Resources Book
Created by an advisory group of parenting educators, librarians, and experts in the field of family support, this site is basically an annotated bibliography of books, multimedia materials, pamphlets, and listings of state and other organizations that serve children and families. You can do a search by materials for: professionals, children and youth, or parents, under subject areas such as Child Development and Behavior; Child Safety, Family Literacy, and Children with Special Needs, among others.



We have a tremendous increase in programming and circulation... Youth Services has added a new position... We are new seen as playing a central role within the community at both the local and state level. Families look to us for help and support.
