Storytime Hiatus

As a heads up, there will be no storytime posts until early February. The Lawrence Public Library will be undergoing a $19 million dollar renovation starting this month, so we will be packing up all the books and moving to another location over the next couple of weeks before the construction starts. The library’s storytimes and children’s programs will start back up once we’re all settled in the temporary space, a few blocks away from the library’s current location. It’s a bittersweet situation. I’m going to miss the floor to ceiling windows in the children’s room, the brightest room in the building, and the Joyce Steiner storytime area where so many storytimes and events have taken place over the years.. Today is the last day the old library building will be open to the public, so I’m looking forward to assisting all the patrons who frequent the library today and at the end of today, say goodbye to the old and look forward to the new. Change is inevitable, and I can feel many great things ahead in 2013.

More information on the move and renovation can be found here.
