<p>The first Family Place workshop that we offered was amazing. Our turnout was unexpected and even today I still have parents asking when the next one will be held. It was such a great idea to have a space for other parents to talk and meet with each other instead of always having to be quiet during a storytime. Also after attending the Family Place training, it allowed me to place more of an emphasis on programming for the birth -5 group. This is how our dance parties came to be. Overall, implementing Family Place has had a very positive effect on our community.</p>
Our Family Place workshop continues to be a success at our library. The program is extremely well-attended, and the babies and parents love coming to the library for it. It is a great addition to our library and to our local community.
