The Children's Room Renovation is happening this Fall!

The Children's area was built nearly 25 years ago.  It is time to spruce things up and align this busy space with the best current youth literacy practices.  During this time of change, the Children's Area will be closed.  Youth Services staff will continue to provide programs and services in a more limited way and in various locations until it is time to move back into the new and improved space.

Beginning September 23, Storytimes will be offered on a more limited basis for the duration of the renovation as follows:

Preschool Storytime - Tuesdays at 10:30 am
Lapsit Storytime - Wednesdays at 10:30 am
Cuentos en espanol - Wednesdays at 6:30 pm

Storytimes have currently relocated to the Anderson Room on the Plaza level
