Our families love our Family Place Library, the workshops, and the new children's programs. Our community has learned that we are not a shushing library and that they can bring their children to the library and feel welcomed. This initiative has brought our library to the forefront of patrons minds when they are looking for places they can go with their children. The resource professionals we've had rave about the workshop and look forward to participating in future workshops. We have always had a vision of our library as a family friendly library, and with the Family Place initiative we are better able to convey our mission to our patrons and our community. Despite the pandemic and hours reductions, families continue to use our library and the Family Place Space in the children's room. We transitioned to virtual and to-go activities for much of 2020-2021, and are proud of the way we were able to serve our community throughout the height of the pandemic.
