In fact, some of our youngest customers have already summitted what they call "Mt. Deer Park" located in the spacious children's area.
The new Deer Park Branch has loud areas, quiet spaces, and everything in-between. The seven colorful study rooms will be a popular space for customers, and some are already using them to make buttons with the guidance of CHPL staff!
