Food For Thought
The Public Library Association (PLA) has partnered with the Harvard Family Research Project exploring family engagement in children’s learning through libraries. They have published a report entitled:
Public Libraries – A Vital Space for Family Engagement
- For families, family engagement is about the knowledge, attitudes, values, and behaviors that enable children to be motivated, enthusiastic, and successful learners.
- For schools and libraries, family engagement means respectful partnerships that offer the information, guidance, and opportunities for families to be active in their children’s learning and development.
