National Parent/Caregiver Appreciation Month - celebrated each November - is a
time to recognize and honor family caregivers across the country. Celebrating
National Parent/Caregiver Appreciation Month raises awareness of parent and
family caregiver issues, recognizes their efforts and increases support for
them. Broward County Library will host a number of National Parent/Caregiver
Appreciation Month events, including story times, lectures, yoga classes and
more. All events are free and open to the public.
Unity, Community and Inclusion
Libraries are all about welcoming and including all members of
our community. In November and December, we’ll be hosting public
events that encourage unity and community, and we invite
everyone to join us!

Read and Learn Together
Family Literacy Month, an initiative launched by the National Center for
Families Learning, encourages parents, children and extended family
members to become actively engaged in learning together. Broward
County Library plays a crucial role in promoting early and family literacy
and services, including free story times, access to digital
library cards for all Broward public school students and programs such as
Wags & Tales, which gives children the opportunity to improve their
literacy skills by reading to a pet therapy dog.
Additionally, the library has installed Early
Literacy Stations in 14 library locations. They feature touch screen
computers that are preloaded with fun, educational games designed specifically
for early learners. The Active
Learning Center, located at
Main Library in downtown Fort Lauderdale, is a free, educationally rich,
children's play space that provides developmentally appropriate activities to
promote school readiness.
For more family literacy-related activities, please attend one of these free
Broward County Library events.

Art Spot: Can you name the library branch where this public art is located?
This work of art is a canopy over the front entrance that welcomes
daytime visitors by washing over them with the blue tones of the ocean.
Composed of a sand-finished aluminum frame and tempered colored glass,
the piece uses sunlight and the building’s architecture to create
ever-changing shadow patterns. Evening visitors are bathed in deeper,
more mysterious blue shadows. Entering or leaving the building, visitors
become part of the piece.
Come back next week for the answer!
The answer to last week's Art Spot, Mirror by Robert Calvo, is located at...
Miramar Library & Education Center.
