The Library’s Baby Garden, provided with funds from a generous grant from the Mylander Foundation, builds the skill of playing for youngest children. Unstructured play allows children to learn about language and think symbolically,which helps them get started on the path to reading readiness.The Baby Garden also encourages parents and caregivers to take an active part in play with their children.
