Family Place Libraries are nationwide network of libraries that embrace the fact that literacy begins at birth, and libraries can help build healthy communities by nourishing healthy families.

A proven change agent, Family Place Libraries transforms libraries into community centers for early literacy & learning, parent education and engagement, family support and community connectivity helping to ensure all children enter school ready and able to learn.
