Early Lit Bits: KDLville Early Literacy Play Spaces

The Byron Township Branch opened a KDLville early literacy play space in April. Over 400 people attended a fun-filled ribbon cutting ceremony! KDLville has been a huge success in the community as evidenced by the new families that visit the library to play and learn as well as the families that come week after week. It is a joy to watch the children and parents play, and there are always “oohs and aahs” when a new theme is introduced. The children frequently prepare imaginary meals in the kitchen as well as entertain their parents and grandparents with puppet shows. Children love pushing the shopping carts filled with food, toys, and books! It’s great to see imaginations at work and early literacy skills growing!
