PLAY at the library!

The practice of PLAY is very important to young children in building their early learning and literacy skills!  Play can help children better understand the context behind situations and stories, leading to better reading comprehension and symbolic understanding.  Play can also help children in navigating new social relationships and communication skills.

Jackie Robinson Day

Baseball season is upon us and today is a truly memorable day in baseball history.  April 15th is Jackie Robinson Day; the 72nd anniversary of his very first baseball game and the first time an African American played Major League Baseball.
