Family Place Libraries
In keeping with our commitment to family-centered services, the Library in partnership with Middle Country Public Library is a Family Place Library. The overall goal of Family Place Libraries is to develop a family friendly environment by transforming libraries into community centers for literacy, early childhood development, parent education and engagement, family support and community information. Our special collections consist of books, toys, early literacy kits, music and multimedia materials for babies, toddlers, preschoolers, parent and caregivers. Financial support for Family Place comes from the Port Washington Library Foundation, and Middle Country Library. Click here to learn more.
