The Newly Renovated Family Resource Center

On May 15, 2012, the Family Resource Center (FRC) officially re-opened to the public with a ribbon cutting ceremony attended by representatives from the Museum and Edward Hospital. Through a generous donation from Edward, DCM renovated this popular area, which provides a quieter space tucked away from the activity and busyness of the Museum. The FRC is an extension of our exhibit philosophy and is a comfortable place to extend early learning. 

The Newly Renovated FRC
Materials provided in the FRC enhance early learning with a focus on literacy. Books and reference materials are provided for children and adults alike. Parents are encouraged to read side by side with children in our oversized, overstuffed chairs. Tables, chairs and shelving are at just the right height to allow children to pull materials and interact in a way that illustrates this as a place designed just for them!

 Story time takes place every Friday morning at 10:00. Ben Weber, DCM’s highly engaging and interactive story teller, reads aloud accompanied by Andrew  Moran playing the accordion.  In addition, the Naperville Public Library joins us in the FRC on the first Wednesday morning of each month at 10:00. 

Come visit, enjoy the renovated FRC and look for continuing updates with a literacy focus!
