The staff at Morrison Regional Library built a play house out of weeded books. I love the creativity of our staff!

  1. The last year I worked there, they had a dog house. It was awesome. Kids kept crawling in and out pretending to be dogs. Then they gave away the dog house at the end of the summer to some lucky kid!!

  2. This is really neat! Morrison was always doing cool things. I remember when they took old computers and decorated them and put them out for very young children to bang on and play with. So they could be like the big kids. 🙂 I wonder if they still have those….
