Come visit us in our temporary home!

The Children's Room is now in its temporary home, right down the hall from our usual location.  We'll be here for the duration of the Children's Library construction project. When you get to the bottom of the stairs, or step out of the elevator, just make a right instead of a left.  It's the room that used to house our media (DVD and CD) collections, which are now upstairs.
