Children's Area

What are must-haves in the children's area of the library? What spaces are needed? How can the children's space encourage learning and exploration?

Children's Area

More space

Since the MLK Library is a central library that must serve as a resource for the whole city, the space in children's must be large enough to hold a collection to meet the needs of the immediate community who use MLK as their regular library but also have new and older books to serve the entire city.

Children's Area

Digital Learning Area for School Age Children

The children's area should have a space devoted to digital learning for school age children. Digital Literacy is a vital tool to success and the library should play a role in introducing children to how computers/internet can help them be successful in school.

 

Computers should have keyboarding software to teach them how to type.

Children's Area

School-age area

It's important to have an area for study and discovery for school-age kids. Tables and chairs for groups of 2 to 4 kids would be nice, and age-appropriate books on low shelves, arranged so that kids can find books without help from adults.
