My Town gives young children developmental jump

A new play area at Upper Arlington Public Library’s Lane Road Library seeks to nurture socializing among children, while also helping to familiarize them with concepts like numbers and geography.

Although the ceremonial opening won’t be until 7 pm Oct. 4, visitors to the Lane Road Library, 1945 Lane Road, on Sept. 20 got the first look at the branch’s newest addition.

My Town, a new Early Learning Play Area on the library’s lower level, is a 500-square-foot space featuring several play options, including a “train table” that allows children to operate toy trains over a miniature map of Upper Arlington and a store counter and cash register that can be used to learn numbers.

An enclosed area for the library’s smallest visitors contains mirrors and provides space to crawl and play.
