Pew Research: Innovative Library Services "In the Wild" (Temecula Public Library, "Play and Learn")

Pew Research: Library services "in the wild"

Featured Library: Temecula Public Library. (Programming Librarian, 7/31/2012)

Excerpt:   Beginning in August, the library will offer a new, monthly story time especially for two- to five-year-olds with special needs. It incorporates the library’s new “Play and Learn” (PAL) island, which is equipped with activities that have been proven to be entertaining to children on the autism scale, such as blocks, magnets, and other shapes. The new story time joins the library’s La Hora del Cuento, a bilingual story time, and Paws to Read, during which children can practice their reading skills by reading aloud to a service dog.
