Changes, Changes, Changes

By now you've noticed the changes in the youth department and perhaps are perplexed as to the location of some of your favorite items. You have probably gotten used to the new shelving in the early reader/board book area. Yesterday we made further changes to tidy up some loose ends. The phonics books have moved to the lower level on the early reader shelves and the board books have moved to their new location beneath the windows in the former puzzle area. They are housed in plastic tubs that are easier for little fingers to use and peruse. This freed up space for our ever-expanding early readers collection.
We now have our Caudill, Coretta Scott King and Newbery award winners moved to their new location on the back wall of the new storyhour room, making it easier for parent and child alike to find that assigned book. Take advantage of our new sitting area, perfect for those third through sixth graders who like to lounge as they read. This space will have further improvements over time so keep your eyes open!
Puzzles and kits can be found hanging just east of the paperback racks. Graphic novels are on the backside of the same shelving unit. Paperback series are on the north wall of the sitting area so if you are looking for Geronimo Stilton, Scooby-Doo, American Girls or any of your fun, favorite reads, you'll find them there.
All in all, it has been an exciting transformation and it's not done yet! You will be truly surprised at what's coming next...but I can't tell you what that is. You'll just have to keep coming in!
