What I like most about my job? Getting to see such variety in library land, and always finding a great idea - whether it be a program, collection display, or marketing idea. Ideas are the great equalizer of libraries - any size library can have a great idea. I've been able to travel to lots of different libraries around the country throughout the last 15 years, and I'm always amazed at the energy and creativity I find and get to bring back and share with others. Cutchogue-New Suffolk was no exception! First of all - let's talk decorations. The children's section and the mezzanine area are located in the original section of the building, which was a former church. Look at those beams!
On the other side of the bookcase, there are toys galore for library play dates.......
But this picture below was my absolute "WHAT A GREAT IDEA!" moment of the day, when I discovered their "tween area"
|The Tween area is called INBETWEEN - what a great play on words!|
Finally, our time at Cutchogue-New Suffolk Free Library was done, and it was time to leave. Of course, walking in or out of the front door there also leads to hidden goodies:
|Who wouldn't want to sit outside?|
|The Library "steeple"|
|Toddler sized car parking outside the front door!|
