Our babysitter recently sent me a text reading, “This library is crazy awesome!! Even cooler than I was expecting!”
The new Youth Services Department is just the latest area to be completed in the full library renovation currently underway and our babysitter is not the only in love with the new space.
“Lincoln loves the whole new area! There is so much to do and so interactive, it’s great!!”

“We had the pleasure of being the first ones in the children’s area along with Sandra Simmons Bos, and the girls had a BLAST!!!!! The two year old I nanny for said, ‘Kristin that was so much fun, let’s go back tomorrow!’ The baby also had fun doing Tummy time with the fish!!! What an amazing area for the kids, cannot wait to come back again!!!”
