Play with your families! When Sacramento Public Library made play the center of its early learning efforts, it immediately resounded with families, creating increased engagement, a shift in perceptions about the library, and more opportunities for staff to model and share early learning information. Learn strategies to infuse do-it-yourself play activities into outreach, programming, and library spaces and discover how to connect your community with critical early learning information through the universal appeal of play.
