Family Place Libraries is a growing, nationwide consortium of libraries dedicated to providing families with young children the information and support they need to nurture happy, healthy children. Building on the traditional role of children’s library services, Family Place Libraries create an environment that is welcoming and appropriate for children beginning at birth. We offer special play spaces, parenting collections, trained staff and Grow with Me Workshops twice each year. In this way, the library connects parents with community resources and child development specialists, as well as programs and services offered at the library and within the community. Family Place Libraries create a network to help ensure that all children enter school ready and able to learn.
Within the Arapahoe Library District, Koelbel, Smoky Hill and Sheridan libraries are designated Family Place Libraries.
