For our younger set, there is a light-filled storytime room, comfy chairs and soft cushions for snuggling up on to read, and armchairs for moms and dads to soothe a wee one with a lullaby or story. For the older kids, there are tables and computer stations to do homework on and a reading area with comfy kid-size sofas.
