Penn’s Little Village at our Langhorne branch and Career Corner at our Yardley-Makefield branch are learning spaces for young children, newborn to age five.
In the Village, toddlers and preschoolers explore miniature versions of a camper, a service station, a market, a library, a firehouse, and a school. They develop early learning and literacy skills through direct experience and problem solving.
In Career Corner, toddlers and preschoolers explore miniature versions of a family diner, a pet salon and a construction site. Children develop early learning and literacy skills through role playing various careers.
At Penn’s Little Village, infants and children who are not yet walking may learn and play in the Baby Garden with their caregivers.
The library does not allow older children in the Village or Career Corner for safety and developmental reasons. As long as they follow the library’s behavior rules, older children may stay in the children’s area of the library while their caregivers and younger companions explore the Village or Career Corner.
The Village is open Monday through Wednesday 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Thursday and Friday 10a.m. to 5p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Career Corner is open Monday through Thursday 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Friday and Saturday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. They close for cleaning one hour prior to the libraries’ closing.
Career Corner is made possible through the generosity of the Hamilton G. Disbrow Trust.
