Some of our patrons have noticed a new addition to our Children’s Room ‘Castle’ near our story time area, thanks to two of our very supportive patrons! Richard and Susan Brown have donated a bench in memory of their grandson Samuel Benedict Brown. The Browns are avid readers and big library users who wanted to make a gift to remember their grandson and have something special for the children who come in to use the Library. Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Brown!
“The Castle is a popular area of our Children’s Room,” says Library Director Chad Leinaweaver, “and it is great that we can add to it, for I think a lot of younger patrons seek out a place to sit in our castle! It was so kind of the Browns to remember the Library with such a generous gift.”
Arlene Sprague, who heads up the Children’s Department, is happy to have more space for her younger patrons too. “The Children’s Department at the Library is as busy as ever, as many parents often want to get their children familiar with and reading books at a young age to prepare for school and also to instill a love of reading. This donation really helps with that too. Many children get excited having a special place to read. It encourages young readers!”
If you would like to see the new castle bench for yourself and secure a nice little spot for a young person to read, pay a visit to our Children’s Room. Also, be sure to check out a few books while you visit with your family so they can read in their own castle at home!
