Nemec, Jenna. “It’s (Still) Never Too Early to Start!” Children and Libraries 9:3, Winter 2011, 15-21.
A survey sent out by the ALSC Early Childhood Programs and Services Committee (ECPS) contained questions regarding current efforts by public libraries to serve parents/caregivers and their babies. Although responses showed that programs varied significantly in frequency, attendance, and length, the following quote was used to “best exemplify the typical public library program for babies, parents and caregivers:
“We hold Mother Goose on the Loose once a week. It is a drop-in program usually attended by ten to fifteen babies and at least one parent/caregiver per child. The purpose is to increase early literacy and social skills in a relaxed, fun environment and to model and teach methods, activities, songs, and rhymes for parents/caregivers.” (p. 20)
