Thanks to those who were able to make it to our London Public Library visit at the Cherryhill branch on Wednesday!
We met with the branch’s children’s librarian, Joanna, who showed us around the bustling children and teen sections. Joanna is still somewhat new to the branch, so her perspective on the collection, its layout, programming and features of the library was interesting.
Joanna showed us the branch’s collection of picture books in other languages, dvds, audio books and graphic novels. We discussed potential issues shelving and cataloging easy readers–something some of our members have researched and experienced first-hand.
We saw some great features the branch has to offer, including “grab and go” bags of high quality picture books that parents can take out without having to take the time to browse and select books themselves. The teen annex section features rotating awesome boxes with activities to create, build or play with. The current awesome box features magnetic poetry for use in the teen annex.
Thank you so much to Joanna for showing us around and answering our questions, we had a great time visiting Cherryhill!
