Children's Playground?

Is there any chance of a children's playground incorporated into the design for the new MLK library? It could be part of the green space on the roof, and would be a great resource for neighborhood kids who don't have any playgrounds nearby.

Children's programs

I encourage you to incorporate frequent and prominent programs for kids. This would draw in families -- locals and visitors alike -- from other parts of the city and surrounding areas. In turn, they would have a positive influence on commerce in the downtown area.

Should MLK have special Children's reading rooms?

I believe that the children's space should include themed secluded reading rooms. The main library of the Salt Lake City library system has the Attic and the Crystal Cave Reading Room for children. They are attractive and great places for children to read together without creating disruptive noise that travels through the library. They can also be used for smaller story times.
