Children's Room receives new shelving for Books on CD
Remember that wonderful Book Launch with Elizabeth Atkinson months ago, supported by the Friends of the West Newbury Library?

Finally, we have had the new shelving installed to the right as you come into the Children's Room. The shelving holds all the books on CD in the Children's Collection. This replaces three spinners! And really opens up the Room!

We thank the Friends, Page School students and teachers, and all of the individuals who contributed to this project!

This is one important and critical step towards the remodeling of the Children's Room. We are hoping to buy mobile shelving so the Room can be used for programming and other activities!
