Guthrie Memorial Library transformed our children’s library into a community center for early literacy and learning education and engagement, family support and community connectivity to ensure all children enter school ready and able to learn. At Guthrie Memorial Library we know that good health, early learning, parental involvement and supportive communities play a critical role in a young child’s growth and development. We created an inviting space for children and families to help build a stronger community. The response from the community has been overwhelming. We have parents, grandparents, and caregivers spending hours playing with their children in our updated space.
