The computer lab in the children's department will be getting a makeover including all new furniture and computers. Construction will begin as soon as all of the supplies have arrived (sometime in the next week or so) and will last for about 2 weeks. We are very excited for our new look and equipment, but we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.
