Explorers Grove: Mission Space

What is Explorers Grove? In January, 2019, Explorers Grove opened in the Children’s Department. Partially funded by a memorial donation honoring longtime librarian Nancy Jackisch, Explorers Grove promotes curiosity, learning, self-expression and discovery. In addition to our cozy tree, magnetic wall and reading bench, the area’s hands-on activity station introduces a new topic every three months. Explorers Grove has quickly become a favorite spot for kids and their grown ups. You're invited to meet us under the tree anytime the library is open.
