Chandler's Create Play Learn Spaces foster a love for learning

When the Chandler Public Library got the opportunity to build a new library program, staff used the opportunity to create innovative spaces to meet the needs of some of Chandler’s youngest community members. Now, spaces are located in each of Chandler’s public libraries and help prepare children for kindergarten.
