Family Place Simple.jpgMamie Doud Eisenhower Public Library to become Family Place Library as part of a National Leadership Grant!
The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) has awarded the Middle Country Public Library a National Leadership Grant to support their Family Place Libraries initiative. Twenty-eight libraries in 7 states will be a part of this grant and our Children's Library is one of them! The grant money will be distributed over the next three years to fund staff training, site visits and project implementation. Middle Country Library staff will work with our library to implement and evaluate Family Place Libraries, a library-based early childhood and family support service model. This multi-phase program will focus on parents and caregivers as first teachers, will be organized around the developmental needs of the child and will link library services with other regional and local family support agencies. The program emphasizes libraries as key institutions within the early childhood and family support community and partners in the promotion of healthy child and family development. The goal is to develop lifelong learners while fostering home/library/community connections to provide community support for families with very young children.

Pinwheels.jpg


BECC.BalSwan.jpg Pinwheels for Prevention

 In observance of National Child Abuse  Prevention Month, National Week of  the Young Child and National Library Week, a Pinwheel Garden was planted in Broomfield outside of the library.  These whimsical toys are to remind the community of happy childhood days and to encourage positive parenting. The Pinwheels for Prevention campaign focuses on  community activities and public policies that prioritize the healthy development of children in recognition that healthy children are an essential building block for community and economic development.  Shining in the sun, the pinwheels represent a bright future for our children and our community.  Pinwheel “planting” took place on Tuesday, April 15 with the help of some of our preschool friends.  To see a video of the event, click here.  To get further involved, visit the Broomfield Early Childhood Council.
