*The last update to the children’s department was 20 years ago. Since then, MUCH has changed in the world of public libraries! Additions to services and collections since 1999 include assorted technology, a circulating toy library, a makerspace collection, and an early literacy activity/resources center, with more to come. While these additions have been accommodated within the existing space, a renovation will greatly enhance access and usability for library patrons.
