Free Parent/Child Workshop Series at the Altadena Library
Sep.27.2011 - Oct.25.2011 06.30PM


The Altadena Library is offering a free workshop for parents of children ages 3 and younger.

The five week Parent-Child workshop is a one-on-one program and will be held at the Library on Tuesdays, September 27-October 25 at 6:30 p.m. The workshop features toys, crafts, books and play. Community resource professionals will be on hand to discuss weekly topics and to answer parenting questions and concerns. In-person pre-registration at the library is required. Space is limited to 25 registered children between the ages of 6 months to 41 months and their parents/caregiver. Older siblings up to age 5 may also attend.

The Altadena Library is a Family Place library. The Parent/Child Workshop, a core component of Family Place Libraries, is offered each fall and spring. This five-week workshop helps families with young children come together with community resource professionals to get the support and guidance they need.

The Family Place Program is a statewide initiative that helps create family/early childhood space in the children's area of local public libraries. Modeled on the national Family Place initiative, the California Family Place Program is supported by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California by the State Librarian.
