Alondra Library became a Family Place library in Spring 2017. A small section within the children’s area has been designated as the Family Place area. The Family Place area provides one AWE computer, age-appropriate toys, child friendly furniture, parenting resources, and a Family Place collection. The children use the furniture, play with the toys, and use the AWE computer. Alondra Library has also adopted school readiness skills which are taught in the Smarty Pants Storytime. The Smarty Pants Storytime attendance has increased significantly in the past year. Alondra Library offers Parent-Child Workshops in the mornings during Spring and in the evenings during Fall. Most families that visit the library will visit the Family Place area with their children.
