Where did everyone go?

Childrens desk with sign that says check out at public service deskIf you frequently visit the Children’s area of the library, you will have noticed that the children’s desk has been pretty lonely lately.

Where did everyone go?

Well, there are some big changes coming up in the Children’s area and a new desk area is just one of them. The new desk hasn’t arrived yet, but there is a make-shift set up in the area where the new one will be. The children’s librarians will now be focusing on library services such as helping patrons find books they want or need, creating child and family-friendly activities and events, promoting early literacy, etc. From now on, they will no longer be taking care of card registrations, fee payments, or book check outs; those functions have been centralized to the Public Service desk.

The old desk will be taken away to make room for lots of new fun and exciting activities for the children to do while they’re at the library. There will be science experiments, arts and crafts, puzzles and games, oh my! The office space that takes up the first part of the Children’s area will be transformed into an art room!

Check out these photos and concept drawings of what the children’s area will be looking like in the near future!
