What Parents Need to Know

Para los Niños was developed, to encourage new Spanish-speaking immigrants to use the public libraries and other resources in their community. Each workshop provides parents with resources, strategies and activities to improve family literacy, learning practices and parents’ abilities to serve as their child’s first teacher.

Program Development & History

Para los Niños was created through a partnership between Children’s Museum Houston and Houston Public Library and has been implemented in over 25 public libraries in the Houston and Harris County area. The program has also been established at Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., through a partnership with the Broward County Library System and St. Paul/Minneapolis, Minn., through a partnership with Minnesota Children’s Museum and their local library systems.
