Painting, Rearranging, and Decorating

These past few weeks have been crazy in the children's room! One thing they don't teach in library school is that you will need to be very handy with power tools. I am convinced my staff and I could build a library with our bare hands at this point.

The children's room has been under construction for the past 5 months, and we are so excited to finally have our room back in working order. During the renovation process our nonfiction collection was half in our circulation lobby, and storytime was in the adult room. Needless to say, everyone had a lot of adjusting to do.

Unfortunately, the only option for carpet color in our renovated space was red. Even worse, our wall was a strange shade of orange. 

Luckily, we convinced our city higher-ups to repaint the wall. We went with a lovely shade of green that we hoped would be soothing. It's crazy how something as small as paint color can completely change the look of a room.

Storytime magic happens in here!

To celebrate our reopening of the entire children's room, my lovely staff worked all week on bulletin boards. My staff members in the children room are wonderful and I couldn't accomplish half of what I do without them.

It's Candyland!

They are some seriously talented individuals. Happy Holidays!
