Maze Library's book playhouse

While the main branch has more resources, the Maze definitely has a cozy, community feel to it. Nothing shows that better than the house in the children's section. The outside is painted with some popular children's storybook characters, incluiding Babar the elephant and a monster from "Where the Wild Things Are." Inside are bookshelves and beanbag chairs for kids to sit and read. The house is especially busy during the summer, when OPPL's popular Summer Reading Program happens. Kids can come into the library to play games, do crafts, or attend a special program. They earn prizes for reading books, and there's a big end-of-summer party as the program finishes.
