CHARLESTOWN -- Cross Mills Public Library recently announced a plan to renovate the libraryâs childrenâs room, creating a space of openness and beauty which will allow easier access for children of all ages.
Funded through a generous grant from Bill and Kathy Applegate, the improved area will house all youth materials in one place and better accommodate attendance at the libraryâs popular childrenâs story hours.
As a way to publicize the renovation and generate additional funding, the Library will hold a âkids-onlyâ book sale, with all proceeds benefiting the childrenâs area. Although construction is underway, funding is still needed for childrenâs seating, additional books and shelving.
The book sale will be held on April 9 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Donations will be gratefully accepted by library staff during library hours. All childrenâs materials in good shape (books, dvds, stuffed animals) will be accepted for sale.
The childrenâs renovation is 100 percent patron funded. For more information or to get involved, please contact CMPLâs Library Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The library is located at 4417 Old Post Road in Charlestown.View more articles in:
