The Jetmore Public Library’s Family Place Library consists of a dramatic play learning center where children can go to pretend, imagine, and be creative. This is powerful for our little learners. It is a place that promotes high-level thinking, problem-solving, turn-taking, and is an ideal place for teaching vocabulary.
We have a small, but specially designed, welcoming space within the children’s area for families with young children to meet and enjoy educational learning and playtime.
Our Family Place Library was made possible by a BUILDING BLOCKS PROJECT GRANT from Russell Child Development Center and the Southwest Kansas Library System.
AWE Early Literacy Station Computer
The Early Literacy Station is an all-in-one digital learning station for children ages 2-8. It requires no Internet connection, so it is safe and secure.
It features more than 70 educational software applications spanning seven curricular areas. The educational programs are pre-loaded
and displayed using engaging graphics and intuitive menus.
Kids love them – and they don’t even realize they are learning!
(Bonus: we have 2!)
Our Family Place Library extends outdoors thanks to the wooden picnic table donated by the City of Jetmore and spruced up with funds from our
Building Blocks Library Grant. We have since added a Little Sidewalk Library for children’s books and a community Blessing Box. It has become a favorite spot at the library.
The Little Sidewalk Library has been dedicated in Loving Memory of Judith Ann “Judy” (Pitts) Hiss
The Blessing Box has been dedicated in memory of Mrs. Betty Fakes
