Play with your child while learning about local resources available to parents of young children. Each week we will have a different professional from our community talk with us about their field of expertise and provide information to parents and caregivers to help with parenting skills. Learn more about each session and presenter.

Parent Child workshops are for parents or caregivers and children ages 1-3 years. Workshops are fun and play based, providing an environment rich with toys, books, an art activity, and an opportunity for parents and young children to spend time together and make new friendships in a comfortable community setting.

In person registration is required. You must commit to attend all 5 sessions. Come to the Children’s Circulation desk to fill out a registration form. Space is limited to 15 families.

Description: D:\FPTI  CD OCT 2013\familyplace_libraries_logo[2].JPGTredyffrin Public Library is part of the network of Family Place Libraries: Building Foundations for Early Learning.


1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

Join the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Club at Tredyffrin Public Library! Read 1,000 books with your child before he or she enters school--a goal experts say children need to help them learn to read for themselves.

One of the best ways to encourage learning is to spend time sharing books every day. Reading together helps develop important pre-reading skills that provide a solid reading foundation—a key to school and learning success. Plus, sharing stories together is fun!

To sign up, stop by the library or call 610-688-7092 x210. For more information, please email Angie at or Carla at or stop by the Children's Library at Tredyffrin.
