The library is a great place to connect with other parents and caregivers.
Bring your child(ren) or the children you are caring for to the library to enjoy story time, crafts, games or just to read and borrow books. This is a great opportunity for your child(ren) to interact with others and make new friends and you may find you meet some great people too.
