The Anacortes Public Library hosts our four-week Play and Learn Series twice a year in May and October for children ages 1-3 and their parent/caregiver. This play-based program provides a rich environment of toys, books, and sensory activities. Families have the opportunity to spend time together, make new friends, and talk one-on-one with a different early-learning professional each week.Comments from participants:“We loved the opportunity to interact with other children, try some new activities and toys, and learn from community professionals.”“I liked to signs at each play station telling me what my daughter is learning with each activity.”“There were so many new activities to try with my child!”The Children’s Library also has an Early Learning space with interactive materials including books, age-appropriate toys, puzzles, dramatic play items, blocks and more. The space is available to whenever the library is open. We welcome all families with young children to the Anacortes Public Library and we hope you will participate in our many programs for young patrons and their grown-ups. Please ask how we can help you connect with family resources in Anacortes. The Play and Learn Series is currently on hold. Please contact the Dr. Sylvia Maxson Children's Library to get more information.
