<p>It’s so nice to have a place where families can come and spend time with each other, playing and leaning together. The Family Fun Zone has become quite the destination spot on a hot, sticky summer day or a cold snowy one. More parents and children are discovering “The Zone” every day and the reaction is almost always the same… “Wow!” In many respects, the Family Fun Zone is responsible for bringing more people into the library in general and, I would say, leading to more card-carrying patrons. I've also noticed that recently the materials in the Parent/Teacher collection have been circulating more often.</p>
This is how I described the Family Fun Zone last year and is it still holds true. I've had many children who, given the choice, will choose the library as their favorite destination and I think we have the Fun Zone to thank for that.
