The Falmouth Public Library has once again been awarded a grant from the Massachusetts Department of Early Education & Care to house and oversee the Early Childhood Resource Center for the Cape and Islands.
The EEC claims that their “collaboration with public libraries creates broader access” for parents, families and those who work within the fields of childcare and education and, as Commissioner Killins states, “give[s] the next generation the strong foundation they need to thrive.” We are delighted to be recognized as an agency that gets the word out, and we are always pleased to work with others who share similar missions, especially literacy!
The ECRC@FPL not only has a growing print and non-print collection (come in to the Children’s Room or browse the collection online), but it also provides a variety of programs throughout the Cape & Islands. In years past, we have provided Family Yoga, The Explicit Noise Family Percussion Concert, Technology 101 for Parents & Providers, Working With Grieving Children, Back to School Night for Providers (partnering with the CFCE) and the First Tales Literacy Program, which is a collaboration with the Friends of the Public Library and the Falmouth Hospital Birthing Center.
We’ll keep you posted on new titles and upcoming programs and events, but until then, please feel free to contact us with your needs, ideas or to receive the ECRC Newsletter. Call (508)457-2555 x5 or !
