Parent/Child Play Opportunities Available at MLS Libraries


Babies learn through play, and playing with babies comes natural for most people.  But have you ever wondered how to play with your baby in a way that enhances his or her chances to develop and learn? 

Parents, grandparents, caregivers and guardians are invited to visit one of the neighborhood Metropolitan Library System libraries to learn how to stimulate your baby’s brain through play.  The series is called “1, 2, 3, Play With Me.”

“The Metropolitan Library System has been offering these Play With Me sessions for several years,” said MLS Children’s Services Coordinator Lisa Wood.  “If they were just opportunities to get away from home and play with new toys, they’d be wonderful learning experiences.  But we offer more than that.  A professional specializing in early childhood development is always on hand to offer parents lessons in child development.”

The sessions begin August 6 and run through the end of November.
