We’re anticipating many exciting changes in 2013 and will bring you more details later, but for now we’d like to let you in on exciting news that will impact our Children’s Department. In 2013, we’ll be reorganizing our Children’s collection. What does this mean? We’ll be developing categories and grouping books together in hopes that it will be easier for children of all ages to find the perfect book! In addition to this easy, new way to find books, we’ll be laying (much-needed) new carpet. If you’ve visited lately you’ll notice we’re showing wear and tear these days. So, what can you expect? In the coming months, you’ll see us prepare by moving shelving, tearing out and replacing carpet, and re-labeling books. During this process we’ll try to keep you in the loop as much as possible through our social media sites as well as in-house signage. If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesistate to give us a call at (317) 852-3167 (ask for Wanda, Denise or Amie). We believe this will make finding a book so much easier for our littlest audience and we’re very excited to encourage the love of reading and the discovery of books in a way even our youngest kiddos can understand!
