We are fortunate to be located very close (within walking distance) to the recently rebuilt Lakeshore Library on West Esplanade. If you haven’t visited yet, I encourage you to do so with your child. Let the library provide your child with access to resources he/she wouldn’t otherwise have. As Dr. Seuss said, “The more than you read, the more things you will know. The more things that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
