PPLD’s Family Place Libraries is hosting a six-week series on Zoom where caregivers can ask questions of community professionals in the fields of safety, school readiness, development, potty training, and more. The topics are different for the July session. We changed them based on the results we saw from our April session’s surveys. This series will take place each Thursday in July from 7:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. Registration is required. Parents and caregivers register for each session separately. For more information about the Parenting Little Ones series and links to register, please visit ppld.org/ParentingQandA
