Family Place Library™

Georgetown Public Library is a member of the Family Place Libraries™ national network, providing a welcoming community environment with resources to help families nurture their children’s development and early learning during the critical first years of life. Our new Family Place offers:

  • A specially designed space in the children’s area for families with young children to relax, play, share books and meet other families.
  • 1, 2, 3 Play With Me-A five week workshop series of fun, play-based activities for toddlers and their parents and caregivers. Rich with toys, books and art activities, the workshops provide an opportunity for families to spend time together, make friends and talk one-on-one with specialists on various aspects of child development and early literacy. For more information and to register for the workshop, please visit the library calendar.
  • Collections of books, toys, music and multimedia materials for babies, toddlers, preschoolers, parents and caregivers.
