Thanks to a partnership with Baltimore County Public Libraries and funding from PNC Charitable Trust, 425 Baltimore County families recently received PlayPacks filled with educational play items and activity ideas. These PlayPacks encouraged children to be active through physical play, to use their imaginations through dramatic play, and to encourage social skills and playing together through cooperative and parallel play.
The PlayPacks were distributed across all Baltimore County Public Library branches and picked up by families registered for BCPL’s read-at-home challenges: 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten and Battle of the Books Jr. which launched on Saturday, Oct. 9th.
Thanks to PNC Charitable Trust for supporting this important effort and getting essential play and learning tools into the hands of area children and families. Our thanks also to Baltimore County Public Libraries for their ongoing partnership and support of Port Discovery!
