Playful Learning in the Library
September 16, 2015
Play spaces encourage the development of literacy skills through active and experiential learning. As part of a building-wide renovation in 2014, the Barrington Area Library combined the best parts of libraries and museums to create a hands-on active learning space that touts the benefits of play and brings the whole family back for more. The project team will share connections between play and learning, tips for planning space for play, ideas for developing support among your library staff and tricks they’ve learned since opening day.
- How play encourages learning and development
- What to consider when planning a space for play
