We’re almost there!

Thanks to generous grant funders, like the Shineman Foundation, and contributions from our amazing community, we’re very close to meeting our goal to renovate the Children’s Room. We’re hoping to have the project complete by Spring 2022! As a refresher, here’s what we plan to do:

  • Replace most of the current bookshelves with ones that better suit the space, are mobile, and make it easier for kids and adults to browse.

  • Replace the carpet with something more attractive and easier to maintain.

  • Update and replace our current furniture with more attractive, fun, and mobile pieces as well as activity centers for little ones to play at.

  • Install a mini-makerspace where kids can learn and create.

  • Repaint the walls with something more fun and eye-catching.

Total Project Cost: $37,124
Amount Raised: $34,127
Still Need: $2,997
