Sarah Newton, FdL Children’s Library

We worked with Sarah to install the Story Book Walk at Lakeside in 2014. Last year, they installed another Story Book Walk at Hamilton Park.  They are developing more areas in the libraries for children to read. They have building block games for the older kids at the library. In addition, they have checkers and cards to play. Kids have to be 8 yrs. old to be left alone in the library. They are working with groups such as Blue Line and Eden Elementary for new programs. This year the Children’s department will be carpeted and FDL Express will be restaged.
