Big Celebration for Smallest Library Lovers

Grand Reopening of the Henrietta Light Children's Room

The Wright Memorial Public Library is pleased to announce that the Henrietta Light Children’s Room is back and better than ever. Repairs were made to the floor’s infrastructure and additional space made to promote literacy and educational exploration.  Now that the dust has cleared and the books are back on the shelves, the library is celebrating in a big way with their smallest patrons. A public ribbon cutting ceremony on July 1 at 2:00 will be followed by a cupcake decorating buffet and other small treats.

The room is named in honor of Henrietta Light who gave 40 years of service to the library as both Vice President and member of the board at the Wright Memorial Public Library.
