Children's Area Changes!

   We are in the beginning phases of a complete Children’s Area overhaul.  Similar to Spring cleaning your house - this type of "cleaning" will be done Library style!   What that means is a shift in the collection, new programming being added and current programming being re-vamped!
One of the most obvious changes to the collection is the location of the Graphic Novels.  They have been moved from the far corner of the children’s area to the shelving unit directly to the left of the Children’s Activity Room.  The Juv. Ref, Country and State books have been shifted down one shelving unit and the current Blue Bonnet books can now be found on the top of the magazine section.
So, bear with us as the changes evolve – we’ll keep you posted as they happen!
