Middletown Free Library is a Family Place Library, which means it is a safe & encouraging place for young families to learn, grow & develop. Twice a year we have these Parent-Child Workshops, which are a multi-week series of Free Play, art activities, and a chance to ask a professional in Childhood Development questions pertaining to your child's growth. For families with infants-3 year olds, the library will host subjects in the 4 weeks with the following areas of expertise:

Early Literacy, Speech & Language Development, Nutrition, and Occupational Therapy

You'll have the opportunity to play with your kids, as that is the best way they get to learn and work on their social, fine & gross motor skills with age-appropriate toys. And, you'll get to meet other parents and coordinate play-dates to further extend your social support circle. All while having a different professional available to ask questions pertaining to your child's development in the mentioned fields.

Sign up TODAY, as space is LIMITED! You must commit to attend at least 3 weeks!
