Public Libraries: Vital Space for Family Engagement…|Harvard Family Research Project

‎So many questions.
Where do we go together as a family?
How do we teach our children the values we want them to take with them throughout their lives?
How do we talk to each other so we can learn new things together ? 
How do we pass on our family stories to our grandchildren ?
In what space can we learn new things from our children ?  

The first answer might be: Sit around the table together when you share food and talk about everything including topics that bore children to tears.

The ‎second response is more nuanced and perhaps news for some families. Libraries are constantly reinventing their spaces to accommodate the shifting patterns of our society right down to the changing needs of modern families.

Go to your library together and talk about the books you look at; the recorded books you listen to; the cool videos you make in the Maker Space; the new coding skills you learned together in the Coding Workshop; or just read in the Café or common room.

Just go to your Library.
Together. 
As a Family.
