Eleanor patrons Inquire Within

West Virginia Public Broadcasting launched a new initiative creating dynamic partnerships with libraries around the state.  Inquire Within, a grant funded initiative, brings award winning PBS content to the libraries in the exchange the libraries agree to offer activities to some of its youngest patrons and their parents. 

PBS content focuses on the whole child: social emotional learning, early reading literacy, and experiences in STEM content, all resources offered with this program.

Libraries are launching the program this summer and fall.  Our early launch partners are Eleanor Branch Library in Putnam County and Tyler County Library.  Some of the activities held  to date include Ready Jet Go! screenings accompanied by space activities, and an instrument petting zoo tied to Martha Speaks, a PBS program that focuses on vocabulary development.   Libraries will continue  activities throughout the year.  In exchange, participating libraries are given PBS resources, books, tablets, games and toys all supporting our literacy efforts.

To follow along on this project or to see what activities are being offered check out our Inquire Within  webpage.

This is a grant funded project and eleven libraries have been selected to participate. Participating county libraries include: Wetzel, Tyler, Doddridge, Harrison, Clay, Webster, Braxton, Mason, Putnam, Lincoln and Boone.  We hope to expand the program in the coming year.
