ReginaDo you know why this young lady is smiling? She just visited the new Children’s Center on the 2nd floor of the Main Library. We are still waiting for some back-ordered furniture and the donor recognition board to be installed, but the room is now open. The room is inspiring and has surprises everywhere!

We are having a special program on Saturday, April 2 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm to celebrate our “soft opening.” Author Julie Saab  and illustrator David Gothard of the Little Lola picture books will be visiting, as well as Curious George. The youth rock band, No Pressure, is performing and there will be art activities and a scavenger hunt.

The Children’s Room will be closed Monday and Tuesday, but for a very good reason! The children and teen collections are being moved upstairs into the new Children’s Center. We had hoped to open on Tuesday, but had a slight delay and will now be opening on Wednesday, March 30th. We are still waiting for some furniture to be delivered and the beautiful donor recognition board to be installed, so we will wait to have a formal grand opening with our wonderful donors. But in the meantime, come and see the new space this Wednesday!
