Plainfield Library children's room moves to improve

Children's Room librarian Janice People shows of the temporary quarters.

The Plainfield Public Library is soldiering on amid difficult conditions with its planned renovation of the children's room, which is essentially unchanged since the modern building replaced the much-loved Carnegie building that faced Library Park.

This has involved compressing the spacious children's rooms stacks, reading tables, computer terminals and staff accommodations into the Anne Louise Davis Meeting Room for the interim.

Janice People, one of the affable and welcoming staffers, advises that users are becoming accustomed to the new quarters and are eager to peek through the windows of the old room to note progress.

The work, which has not yet started, is expected to take about a year once it begins.

Children's Room is in temporary quarters in the Library's public meeting room.
