A major transformation of a popular area at White Pigeon Township Library will be unveiled this weekend.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony takes place at 9:30 a.m. Saturday to make official the restoration of the Kathryn Kistler Children’s Room. The project was identified by library director Perri Saunders last spring and work got started in the fall after the township’s library board approved a $70,000 allocation.
Saunders said she is excited to see the public’s reaction to a room that she said had become outdated.
She said the job was turned over to Arkos Design of Mishawaka.
Saunders said she especially likes how the use of a few bold colors – orange and purple specifically – have enhanced a 2003 mural on the south wall of the room. It also features a new lighting scheme and a soffit around the room’s main entry was removed to create a more open look and feel.
The adjacent Dorothy Lee Room was used to house kids books during the restoration.
