We’re looking forward to a new look in kidsZone! Painting of the department is scheduled to begin on Monday, May 22. We’re very excited to have bright new colors that will be attractive to families and will freshen up the department.

Here’s the important information you need to know:

  • Workers will be here from approximately 7 a.m. – 3 p.m. each day. All painters have passed a background check.
  • Work will include removal of wallpaper and painting. All paint and materials used are lead-free and entirely safe for children.
  • kidsZone will remain open during the work. Sections of the department will be closed while workers remove wallpaper and paint, and then each area will reopen once work is complete.
  • All kidsZone collections will be available throughout the work. If you can’t find an item, just ask a staff member for assistance.
  • Because we want to keep kidsZone open while it’s painted, we don’t have a set end date for this project.
  • The collection of original illustrations will be removed during work and rehung near the windows once work is complete.
  • We’ll be retiring the virtual fish tank. This area will soon feature our new youth books and hands-on activity stations.
