Launched in 2000, StoryPlace is an award-winning literacy platform designed by the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library. Though it has been around for a couple of decades, the platform's efforts to virtually recreate the experience of physically going to a library are especially welcome now. Caregivers of preschool age children will delight in the Literacy tools, Preschool Activity Library, and interactive storybooks available on the site. Many of these tools are designed to complement each other. For example, young readers can check out the online story Bananas for Lunch, proceed to the "Count the Bananas" activity, and conclude with the "Paper Bag Monkey Puppet" craft. Additionally, readers can tune in for live storytime events (noted on the Storytime Calendar page as well as highlighted on the home page under Upcoming Storytime Programs). The site and individual stories can be viewed in English and Spanish. StoryPlace is financially supported by Smart Start of Mecklenburg County, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources.
