CHARLESTOWN -- Cross Mills Public Library recently announced a plan to renovate the libraryâ€™s childrenâ€™s 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 libraryâ€™s popular childrenâ€™s story hours.
As a way to publicize the renovation and generate additional funding, the Library will hold a â€śkids-onlyâ€ť book sale, with all proceeds benefiting the childrenâ€™s area. Although construction is underway, funding is still needed for childrenâ€™s 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 childrenâ€™s materials in good shape (books, dvds, stuffed animals) will be accepted for sale.
The childrenâ€™s renovation is 100 percent patron funded. For more information or to get involved, please contact CMPLâ€™s Library Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The library is located at 4417 Old Post Road in Charlestown.View more articles in:
