The Lackawanna County Children’s Library was the recipient of a grant of building blocks and supplemental materials from the Commonwealth Libraries. Libraries have been at the forefront of early education and inspiring young minds. The Block Party program provides children, parents, and early educators many opportunities to explore block play at the library. It has been said that “play is the work of children”, the library offers a place for children to “work”. The program offers many benefits that include open-ended play; allows free expression; increases the use of fine and large motors skills; and collaboration and team work to name a few! When building children are engaging in dramatic play and increasing their language and vocabulary skills. Our first session is Thursday, April 23 at 10:30. Interested preschools are invited to call to arrange a Block Party visit. Please call the Children’s Library for further information. 570-348-3000 ext. 3015.
Can we build it! Yes we can!
