We knew that College Station was continually growing, but after we were closed for 10 months for renovations, we were absolutely blown away by the number of people who come out every week to our new Family Place Library. We have close to 1,700 folks who visit and play. We have moms and caregivers who have play dates here, preschool kiddos who come with teachers for a little while, and lots of grandparents who bring their grandchildren to hang out and play with other children. We're even attracting people who have never been to the library!
Here is a recent piece that the City of Bryan did on Mounce Library’s winter Play2Learn program (we call our Parent/Child Workshop "Play2Learn"): https://www.facebook.com/CityofBryan/videos/10155270153246367/ and it talks about the importance of the Family Place Parent/ Child workshops. We've noticed that at the Play2Learn sessions, various resource professionals who may not have been aware of each other's programs make important connections leading to future collaboration!
