In the past 2 years, the children’s space at South Jordan Library has drastically changed. It was the typical library children’s area, but now it hums with the sounds of impromptu puppet shows, parental networking, child-parent play, and families.
To support the five Early Literacy Practices, we implemented a playspace, reorganized our picture books to encourage browsing, and adjusted collection locations. Over time and with a little money we came up with delightfully surprising results.
