RPL at the Laundry Mat (Rockford Washer Laundry), December 2

December 2, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Where: Rockford Washer Laundry

Rockford Public Library brings the library to the laundromat!

Laundromat Libraries will be an outreach program that increases access to children’s books and promotes the development of early literacy skills for children and families who visit participating local laundromats. Each laundromat library would contain diverse, high-interest books in English, Spanish, Arabic, Karen (Burmese), French, and Swahili for children ages 0-8.

Families are invited to read while at the laundromat and browse parent resources provided by RPL.

Additionally, a scheduled activity with RPL Staff every other week will occur. As the program develops, the activity schedule can change frequency based on the specific neighborhood’s needs.
