The McIlroy Teen Room is home to teens reading, using computers, or participating in teen programming. The popular Lauri Ann West Children’s Room has an expansive collection of picture books, CDs, puppet kits, young readers, and chapter books. The Hulmes Family Story Room finds children enraptured by books read aloud while the Rockwell Family Art Studio provides a space to create art projects that help children process and retain the stories they have heard.
