Family Place Workshop

The Covina Public Library is a Family Place Library! Family Place Libraries™ is a network of children's librarians nationwide who believe that literacy begins at birth, and that libraries can help build healthy communities by nourishing healthy families.

This project is supported by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California by the State Librarian.

During the “Play And Learn Workshops,” the Library will provide a setting for the child and parent to play and interact with toys, crafts, and books while also introducing the parent to some of the local parenting resources. Weekly sessions will include child development and behavior, nutrition, speech and hearing, literacy, etc. This program is FREE but registration is required! Please call (626) 384-5293 to sign up for one of our “Play and Learn Workshops.” Space for each of the workshops is limited to 15 families with children ages 12 – 36 months.

Registration Information:

Please fill out the Workshop Registration Form and return it to the Library. You may also fax it to (626) 384-5315 to the attention of Veronica Van Anrooy.

The Library invites children who are learning to read to visit the children’s area and read to a loving, friendly dog. This unique program gives readers the opportunity to read to a nonjudgmental listener -- one who will accept the story exactly as it is read. All dogs have received certification from Therapy Dogs International, Delta Pet Partners, or Therapy Dogs Incorporated. Read for fifteen minutes and earn a Paws ticket. Collect three Paws tickets (equal to 45 minutes of reading) and get a free DVD rental! Children must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver.

DAY & TIME: Fridays, 3:30-4:30 pm

LOCATION: Covina Public Library 234 N. Second Avenue
