KDLville Ribbon-Cutting Parties


It’s party time! Celebrate with Katie L. the elephant as she cuts the ribbon and welcomes you to KDLville, KDL’s new early literacy play space. Families with children ages 6 and under are invited to have fun with crafts, games, balloon animals, face painting, and a dance party. And what’s a party without dessert? Come enjoy a piece of our special KDLville cake!

KDLville is an interactive early literacy learning center where young children and their caregivers can play, grow, and read. The spaces will contain a variety of fun, developmentally appropriate activities that focus on different skills that will help children get ready to read.  Some examples might include a puppet theater, a play grocery store, a train table, pre-writing games, etc.  The activities will be rotated so patrons will get fresh experiences every couple of months. Promotional materials that contain caregiver education on reading readiness will also be provided in the play spaces.

KDLville Ribbon-Cutting Parties will be held:
Tuesday, September 28, 9:30 AM – East Grand Rapids Branch
Wednesday, September 29, 10:00 AM – Walker Branch
Thursday, September 30, 10:30 AM – Wyoming Branch

Come and celebrate with us!

    I am a working mom, my daughter would love to attend a ribbon cutting party, will there be any in the evening for those of us that work?

    As more libraries in KDL create KDLville spaces I am confident that ribbon cutting parties will happen at all different times of the day and during the week. Thank you very much for the suggestion.

    The great thing about KDLville is that even after the ribbon cutting parties you can stop by the library and enjoy a wonderful interactive early literacy learning center with your child. We hope to see you!
