Michael Perkins, designer and webmaster for www.tscpl.org, will be adding quite a bit of color to the Youth Services area with a 1,050-square-foot mural, which is just the beginning of improvements that will turn the Youth Services area into a fantastic, engaging, learning environment for area children.
Expect library books to shift and small areas of the library to be closed soon as we prepare for this mural project. Our facilities staff will move furniture, and signs will direct children and adults around the work, which will be done in shifts. Expect to see big changes in the mural monthly starting in January.
Pictures, like a schoolhouse, tornado and teddy bear, will tie into the collection seamlessly connecting the customer’s experience to the art with stuff they can take home.
“One example of this is our schoolhouse and school bus that will contain resources to be ready for and successful in school,” Leann Sevy, Youth Services supervisor, said.
The mural that’s already in our Story Zone will be altered to be consistent with the improvement project’s design. Michael will begin with that area.
Help grow the next generation of readers with a fun and enticing redesign of the Youth Services area. We dream about life-sized murals to enchant a child’s imagination and make lasting memories. Call The Library Foundation for ways you can fund these improvements, 785-580-4498.
