I recently got to tour the Round Rock Public Library children’s area after they became a Family Place Library and it looks wonderful! Children and caregivers were playing and reading together. Here is just some of the work they have done.
In the low shelves along the window, they have lots of building toys, puzzles, and puppets. In the shelves along the wall to the left is their Parenting Collection of books that has seen a lot of circulation. In addition to creating this space, they reorganized other areas that opened up more space and made their board books more visible. The staff seemed quite pleased with their participation in the program.
Their Teen Volunteers, or Volunteens as I like to call them, were ready to sign patrons up to participate in their Summer Reading Program.
Here I am (middle) with TSLAC Youth Services Consultant Christine McNew and RRPL Youth Services Manager Theresa Faris.
Isn’t their Children’s Desk lovely?
