Early Lit Bits: KDLville Early Literacy Play Spaces

The KDLville space at the Spencer Township Branch opened in August 2011. Young children and their families love it! They can be found mailing notes in the mailbox, writing on the etch-a-sketch, cutting strips for scissors practice, and more at the writing center; building with Uncle Goose letter blocks and vehicles on the maze rug; telling stories with puppets; reading under the canopy; discovering objects hidden in the letter bags; etc. But by far the most popular area is the mini wood kitchen made of walnut and cherry by Palumba and the tool table behind it. We can say with certainty that we are raising, not only readers, but a lot of great cooks in Spencer Township!
