Family Place Library Program Grant
The Watauga Public Library has been invited to participate in the Family Place Library Program. The goal of this national program is to expand the role of public libraries as community centers.
Selected staff will attend a four-day training in Long Island. The training is provided by a $12,000 grant. The Texas State Library will provide each participating library with $6,000 to purchase learning tools, furniture, shelving and a parenting collection for Parent/Child workshops and for developing a family-friendly interactive public space.
The Texas State Library and Archives Commission’s initiative connects children’s librarians and libraries in 27 states and in more than 400 sites nationwide to help build healthy communities and healthy families recognizing that literacy begins at birth.
