New In the Teen Corner

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Check out our new furniture and rugs! If you haven’t been in to the library in the last couple of months, make sure to come in soon. Our teen area needed a makeover, so I got a new table and four chairs, new coffee tables, and new fun rugs. Next up, I’ll hopefully be replacing our three lounge chairs as soon as I can find some that will fit in our teen corner. Come in and enjoy!
