Our Family Place Library has really become a third space even with all of the various events happening around our community. Many families come several days a week, even when there are no programs. They enjoy utilizing our children's space and never tire of it. It is through programs like the Parent Child Workshop and our play area that hooks families and brings them back regularly. Many of our families can't imagine libraries not offering these services. Some families drive 30 minutes from other cities just to come to Norfolk's libraries because we are the only Family Place Library system in the area. I believe the biggest impact has been the connections that form between the people that come to our library. These connections are forged in the PCW, the play area, and the baby/toddler/preschool classes. One example would be two parents who are helping each other develop their second language skills while their daughters have a play date. They met for the first time in a PCW and two years later, they continue to help each other. Meanwhile, their daughters have secure attachments to their mothers and they have excellent social skills despite them both being only children in the family.
