Children's area Changed

The Easy section of the Canby Library gets a new look. The easy section includes picture books and easy reader books for children. The section was moved from the outer wall to the center area of the children's department. The books were taken off the vertical shelves and moved into book bins designed especially for children. The kids love them! They are just the right height for little people and there is no danger of materials falling off the shelves hitting someone on the head and everything is within their reach. They were made by Burton Hendrickson of Canby/Madison, from oak to match the color of the existing furnishings. The coloring table was moved into the center of the floor and beanbag chairs positioned around the area for relaxing. Stuffed animals can be found lurking among the books and a table of building blocks and toy box finish the area. The toys and a coloring table were suggested by some grade school children as a way to entertain their younger siblings while the older kids look at books. Thanks kids for the ideas.
