Play at your neighborhood library? Yes, it's happening all across the city and at the Hall Branch. Yes, play is making a big comeback.
Child development experts have long known about the benefits of play. Play is how children learn and make sense of the world around them. More importantly, play promotes pre-reading skills, cognitive and executive functioning, and socialization skills, just to name a few.
At Hall Branch and many other CPL locations, you can not only stop by and check out the latest copy of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, but you can plop down on our storytelling rug and construct an edifice or two with giant Legos. We also have a plethora of board games and puzzles for your playing pleasure!
