We are pleased to announce that Youth Services has won a Stewart’s Holiday Match Grant!  Stewart’s awarded us $500 to enhance our Early Literacy Place Space with multi-ethnic puppets, dress-up costumes, and other educational toys.  Play is described as one of the best ways children can learn language and literacy skills, and the library’s Early Literacy Play Space is a place where this sort of vital learning is encouraged and celebrated.
