Melrose Park Library Youth Services Department Receives Grant from Target for the Reading Takes You Places storytime series

The Youth Services department announced a partnership with Target® in recognition of its efforts in early literacy education. The grant will allow us to obtain materials to make our storytimes more interactive and exciting with story-telling props, craft supplies, books, and family-friendly seating.

This grant is part of ongoing efforts by Target to strengthen families and communities throughout the country. Since opening its doors, Target has given 5 percent of its income to organizations that support education, the arts, social services and volunteerism. Today that translates to more than $3 million every week.

Stay up-to-date with Storytime events and a variety of other youth services events. Call (708-649-7484), email (mpyouth@melroseparklibrary.org), or IM the Youth Services department to sign-up for programs.
