The Framingham Public Library will be hosting a ribbon cutting for the grand opening of the new Early Literacy Playspace in the Children’s Room at the Main Library on Saturday, August 5th at 11:00am. The public is invited to celebrate the grand opening followed by interactive play in the Playspace, which includes a play kitchen and farmer’s market stand, wall mounted activities, light tables, sensory tables and more!
The Early Literacy Playspace and its educational toys, games, and activities were funded by an LSTA grant (Library Services and Technology Act) the Framingham Public Library received in October of 2016 from the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners. This federally funded “Mind in the Making” grant furthers the Library’s commitment to Early Literacy to our entire community, and offers the opportunity to provide under-served children with early educational play and activities crucial to early development and school readiness. The toys, activities and games purchased with the grant funds are aimed at early education and social development and at helping parents and caregivers better understand how they can also learn at home.
Aout 100 people dropped by to hear Jon Dreyer and James Merenda at McAuliffe! Enjoy our photos of the event.
