Kids' World was the place to be on Saturday for the Kids' World Open House. Parents, grandparents and kids of all ages joined us to see all the exciting and colorful changes we've made. Our community partners were on hand to greet library users and talk about the new additions to Kids' World that were purchased by their generous donations. They include:
Nina and Bob Mariano from Mariano's Fresh Market who donated funds for the new aquarium
Kris Stabler representing Arlington Park which donated an Early Literacy Computer for the I Can Read area
Steve and Barbara Diedrich and Josephine Perez from the Friends of the Library whose donation funded the interactive wall panels in Kids' World.
In addition, there were refreshments for all, a magician and musicians from the Metropolis Performing Arts Centre showing children how to play the flute, clarinet, violin, keyboard and guitar.
