Grand Opening Party for the newly remodeled Kids’ Area
February 18, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Celebrate the newly renovated children’s area of the Hood River Library on Saturday, February 18th, at 6:00 pm. This kid-friendly event starts with wacky Mo Phillips and his band, followed by food, games, prizes and more! Meet the artists and craftsmen who worked on this project. Come be inspired by the beautiful new space.
Library Foundation members and Feast of Words 2016 attendees raised over $24,000 to transform the children’s library. New shelving has opened up the entire area, some units have been put on wheels to move for programming. There are lovely new couches, fresh colors on the wall, hand-crafted signs by Ben Bonham, and murals by artist Mark Nilsson, all in themes reflecting the beauty and pride of the local area.
