Fremont Library Serves Parents & Caregivers with New Family Workstations
From our friends at FADL:
Staff at the Fremont Area District Library are thrilled to announce that the library now has two family workstation carrels for parents and caregivers. One is in the Children's Department and one is in the adult area.
Library Director Jackilyn Roseberry says, “Here at the library, we feel extraordinarily fortunate to have so much support from our community. Not just from our patrons who come in every day but also from organizations like the Gerber Foundation, who recently provided us with a grant that allowed us to purchase these carrels for the library. These will allow a parent/caregiver to work on the computer while keeping their little one(s) in a safe confined place next to them. We want to make sure everyone in the community feels welcome here and that we have a place for them. Whether you need to check your social media, email a friend, apply for a job, complete school work, or anything else that requires a computer, you will be able to do that with your young child by your side.”
Each carrel will be equipped with a learning panel, age appropriate board books, and other age appropriate toys that will be cleaned regularly and replaced as needed. Computers will soon be installed at each workstation.
The Fremont Area District Library would like to extend a huge thank you to the Gerber Foundation for helping them serve our community!
