Children's Library: An Update

Fri, August 13, 2021

The new Children’s Library will be quite a sight to behold!

Situated just across from what will be the new Zelinsky Park, the Children’s Library has nearly double the space of the old one with brand-new features and amenities designed just for the little ones.

Our Children’s Librarians continue to work tirelessly to help instill in our youngest patrons a lifelong love of libraries and reading, and this dynamic new space will help them and their families do just that!

Included in the new design will be:

• A dedicated storytime room that can double as a craft space

• An enclosed patio for outdoor reading, snacks, and playtime

• Plenty of window seating, perfect for curling up with a good book

• Study tables and counter spaces for group and project-based work

• A collection size double that of the old Children’s Library

Because the Children’s Library is such a popular destination for families with small children, we have made additional naming opportunities available to the community.

Those opportunities include (but are not limited to):

• New tablets and public computers

• Installing the mural

• Soft playground flooring for the patio

• Toys for “Stay and Play” Storytime

• Storytime puppet collection

• Toddler toys for the family play space

• New Art Clock for the wall

• Funding the Parent/Teacher collection
