Young library patrons to get `Market' space

Posted

The children's department at the James H. LaRue Branch Library, 9292 Ridgeline Blvd. in Highlands Ranch, has a new feature, certain to mean many little people will want to settle in for the day. “The Market,” as it will be known, is created by a donation from the Whole Foods Market and will resemble family-friendly spaces for kids and adults to enjoy together in the three new libraries under construction in Douglas County (Castle Pines, Lone Tree and Parker). Youngsters will be able to choose, weigh and buy their produce and wheel in a little cart to the kitchen for preparation.
