When we took over Shenstone Community Library, we wanted to be as Child Friendly as possible. Which is why we built not one Chilren’s Area but two!
The larger Children’s Area is situated in the main room of our Library and holds over 1000 children’s books to suit all ages, from their very first touch and feel book through to a best-selling Teen literature including all their favourite authors like Julia Donaldson, Jaqueline Wilson, Roald Dahl, David Walliams, Stephanie Myers and hundreds more.
There is also a large seating area within the Children’s section with chairs, beanbags for the kids to relax and read books on to their hearts content. This area is also where we hold our popular Baby Bounce and Rhyme and Story Time groups
The second Children’s area is in our all new Coffee Shop and has been beautifully designed especially for us by local interior designer Emma Taylor.
This is more of a play area for younger children complete with toy wooden trains, a magnetic letter board and tables and chair full of colouring pencils and sheets. There’s even a rocking chair and a small tented area, perfect for using as a reading den. So you can sit back and relax with a drink, safe in the knowledge your little ones will be entertained.
Whichever area the children decide to use, there’s no Shhh’ing here. Just lots of books, colouring, playing and fun!
