Project Details

The highlight of the renovated Florissant Valley Branch is the new children’s Discovery Zone, sponsored by Emerson. The space is designed to encourage children to explore, play and learn. The Discovery Zone has several unique features including a pneumatic tube display, an interactive light wall, and a large format touch screen where kids can play games using educational apps. The Discovery Zone also includes an area for younger explorers, sponsored by Dana Brown Charitable Trust. The Early Explorers’ Area will have activities designed for small children. The renovated branch also features a new teen space, three private study rooms, a quiet reading room, a laptop bar, a business center with fax, copy and scanning machines, a vending area and two revamped community meeting rooms. New shelving, furniture and carpeting has been installed throughout the branch.
