Family Place Training Institute
The three-day Family Place Training Institute provides theoretical grounding in family centered library services and practical training in the core components of Family Place. The Family Place Training Institute prepares participants to implement the initiative locally and provides a vehicle for librarians to share experiences and effective practices with other Family Place librarians throughout the United States. Topics covered include:
All participants receive a Training Manual, relevant articles and books, and practical materials and information to help implement the Family Place Libraries Initiative. Beyond the training, Family Place Libraries staff provide four years of technical assistance to all participating sites.
The Training Institute is held at the Middle Country Public Library, the national model for Family Place Libraries, in Centereach, NY (Long Island).
