Youth Services has a new look! The remodel of the Youth Services space expanded the play area on the main floor of the library to provide about 500 square feet of additional space where kids and caregivers can play and learn together!
We are still waiting on a few finishing pieces, but new toys are out in the Robin's Nest! Stop by the library and see!
