BEVERLY — The Beverly Public Library plans to launch a "play program" for children with a $10,000 federal grant.
The program will encourage interactive learning for children and their parents/caregivers, according to a press release. There will be "themed" play areas and celebrations throughout the year, said Beverly Public Library Director Anna Langstaff.
"We look forward to refreshing the children's room and adding resources to encourage playful curiosity, facilitate social interaction, and enable quiet 'together time,'" Langstaff said.
The federal Library Services and Technology Act grant was awarded by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.
