Hey Kids!

During the big renovation of the Children's Library, we moved the fish tank out to the East Wing near the Study Rooms. But guess what? Today, our fish moved back to the Children's Library to get ready for the re-opening! I think they'll be happy there! I sent LB in to give you a sneak peek of the new tank and the awesome new benches surrounding it. Now, kids will be able to sit right next to the fish and watch them swim around.  They can't wait to see you again in a few more days after the renovations are complete.

Bear Hugs!
