Play, Learn and Grow Together @ Your Family Place Library
The West Babylon Public Library Family Place area is a welcoming, fun environment where you and your young child can read, play and learn. This specially designed space features materials for children and parents including board books, picture books, toys, puzzles, blocks, and more, all creating opportunities for little ones to explore. As your child’s first and most important teacher, these activities will help you build your child’s early literacy skills. We also invite you to register to attend one of our developmentally appropriate programs for young children and their parents, including our new Parent Child Workshop with hands-on activities and access to resource professionals.
