“We’ve gone through a lot of change. We’re exploring this idea of a library as a gathering place, and a place that supports creativity. Because that’s what a library should be: a place for people to create and share stories.” - Chief Librarian Christina de Castell via @montecristo_mag ⠀⠀

We're so excited to share that @dilawrifoundation announced a $5 million gift to help us create new and enhanced program spaces, services and resources for our Children's Library! 🎉

It's our most popular area and the demand has outgrown our current space. This gift will help us create new activity zones for toddlers, preschoolers and school-aged kids, and new resources to further expand our early childhood education programs. #feelinggrateful ❤️
