I accidentally posted this at the YSS Events, News and Info. Blog (take a look for some great reading), but I meant to post it here!
Menomonie Public Library's children's desk has an inviting new feature: a magnet board! Jodi Bird, children's librarian, says they plan to switch out magnets every once in a while. A lack of wall space (Menomonie Public Library is mostly windows) did not deter the children's staff. This magnet board is a (ahem) magnet for kids, and makes the desk even friendlier and more appealing.
What's even better is this is just sheet metal, purchased from a local guy for $27. Not breaking the bank, but sure making the library more fun, and supporting literacy to boot.
