Our new and improved play space continues to be widely loved by families with young children in our community. The children's department provides several family friendly spaces throughout our library. For example, one space is for the dedicated use of children two years and younger, and another is an open play area with types based on different types of play. We have a third area that contains a LEGO table and a train table. The tops of these tables are reversible and used during programming events. Flexible seating areas that include space designed for adults and children complement our Family Resource area. This is also where we share community information. All our spaces are used extensively and families love them! Our library is a space where families come daily to play, have a play date, read, write, or use their imagination to create. In an effort to make our picture book collection more kid-friendly, we reorganized and re-catalogued the books based on topic. In 2018, we reported that circulation had gone up 60%; the picture book reorganization continues to be very successful! We also first reported on our 1000 Books Before Kindergarten collaborative program in 2018. Since then, the program has taken off! Approximately 210 book bags have been added to our collection; to date, families participating in the tracking portion of the program have read over 18,000 books! Our staff continues to embrace families and welcome them to the library, making it safe for children to be children. The atmosphere in the library makes it easy for staff to build relationships with families; in fact, families often comment on the welcoming nature of the staff, as well as how much growth they observe in their child after coming to the library regularly. The library has always been a destination for families due to the many programs offered here; however, our status as a Family Place Library has cemented our role in the community as a hub for early learning.
