The Salado Public Library is located in a small Central Texas village of approximately 2100 residents. Prior to becoming a Family Place Library there was only 1 story time per week and it often had very low attendance. Now that we have developed our program, we are seeing a drastic increase in children's program attendance. Our story times often attract 20-30 young children and their parents/caregivers. We have noticed a huge increase in the number of families who drop into the library just to play with the toys and materials we have on the floor in the Children's area. We are very pleased that we are seeing an increase in families who are non-native English speakers attending our Children's programs, as well. We receive many, many compliments about the changes we have implemented during the last year. In addition, we are starting to attract families who live in other towns/cities in the area....many of which have their own public libraries! We are in the process of planning our next Parent/Child workshop, which we call "Bright Beginnings." We are hoping that since the word is getting out about our program, that we will have an increase in attendance in our upcoming workshops.
