I heard the library has created a Family Friendly area in the library. Where is it?
The new HBLL Family Friendly Area is located on Level 3 (entry level) in the library.
This specially purposed area is south of the Circulation Desk and across the hall from the Reading & Writing Center and the Accessibility Lab.The Snack Zone is nearby.
There are great facilities in this large and light space which features windows low enough for tots to see outside to the courtyard or inside to see the students passing by in the hall. There are spill proof and kid carpeted floor spaces, minature tables and chairs, an awesome fort and a train/car/truck wall and floor layout. There are blocks and of course lots of children's books. There is a glass walled study area for Mom & Dad so you can study and watch the happenings in the play area at the same time. There is a quiet space with comfy rockers for nursing moms, a changing table, a snack table and a building phone to call for help in case of accidents or other problems. There are doors to discourage escape from the area . . . . and MORE!
Come visit and bring your little ones.
