Families Playing in Hawkins

As part of the LSTA Early Literacy grant this year, several libraries received mini-grants, either to help promote family engagement, or to help with media mentor efforts.  Here's what Arlene and Marena did in Hawkins:

"The Hawkins Area Library purchased fun, new additions for our children's area to encourage parents/caregivers to interact with the children while at the library and hopefully at home also. 
Playing store

We held a " Family Engagement" event during one of preschool story times to unveil the new items, we also had books on display that could be used with each of the items and explained how easy and how much fun is to read a story and then play(engage) with their little ones. 
More playing store!

Everyone had  a great time and these items have been a huge hit and are being used on a regular basis, children & adults."
