Our Baby Play Zone is the perfect, safe spot for little ones 0-24 months old to explore and discover. Little critters are painted on the walls in a river valley scene, including our library mascot, Ferguson the Fox. Also featured are the elements of early literacy: read, talk, play, sing, write, and move.
Thank you to Heartland Ford for their generous donation, which made this space possible.
