Just Another Reason Why I Love My Local Library

Last year I posted that our local library was undergoing a major change -- total demolition to make way for a brand new "green" library that would be 6x's the size of the old building. Today was the grand opening of the new building.

We missed the ribbon cutting ceremony, but arrived in time for some of the final children's activities, including a great music time/story telling/puppet show by a local kids entertainer.

From the moment we walked into the children's room my daughter was completely enthralled.

Besides all the new books, music, and movies the room includes a train table, checker board, puppet theater and flannel board, kid's computers (with learning games) and little tables and chairs with an assortment of puzzles. I can see many a rainy afternoon spent in this room, but I don't mind!

I only had a moment to check out the other areas, including the amazing gas fireplace and reading area for adults, but from what I saw I am in love. This is such a bright, beautiful and amazing new library. I am so happy I get to regularly visit it!
