Family Place Library at the Crowley Public Library is more then just a physical space. It is truly a philosophy of service. From providing a space with toys and manipulatives where children can play and be engaged to a staff that is dedicated to supporting the development and growth of our youngest members and their parents, Family Place has transformed our library and the community. The library has seen an increase in the number of young families that visit the library. Families have come to rely on the library as a safe place for their children and a place where they can find more information and resources on parenting. We have also seen many relationships between families in the community develop organically through meeting at the workshops and/or regularly scheduled story times.
