Bethany College Children’s Collections Expands to T.W. Phillips Memorial Library

The Grace Ryland and William Henry Robinson Children's Library, fully renovated and redesigned, has taken up residence on the main floor of the T.W. Phillips Memorial Library.

The Children’s Library, under the guidance of Heather Ricciuti, director of libraries and learning resources since 2009, evolved from a small collection of children's materials originally housed on the upper level of the main library. Education major Leslie Lacaria ’03 re-envisioned the space into “Kids Korner” for her senior project. The project turned the space into a welcoming, family friendly resource and featured handmade decorations, a chalkboard table, stuffed animals, games, reading materials and more.
