LaGrange Association Library
1110 Route 55, LaGrangeville
A Note from the Director
Mary De Bellis
Thanks to generous funding from Dutchess County, the Library now has 2 early literacy learning computers, 6 early literacy learning tablets, and 10 additional early literacy kits (all pictured below) for our young patrons and their families.

The stations and tablets, geared towards ages 2 through 8, contain a variety of fun, educational, and engaging software that teaches and reinforces concepts in the areas of science, technology, reading, engineering, arts, and math. While children just think they are having fun, important skills are being cultivated to support school readiness and success.

The early literacy kits are geared towards pre-schoolers and up and may be checked out of the Library. Each colorful bag contains books, games, puzzles, DVDs, and other materials about a specific topic. With 16 bags in total now at the Library, children can learn about space, bugs, dinosaurs, food, yoga, and so much more!
