Outdoor Experience

“By creating libraries with integrated natural spaces, we create a center for developing kids’ intelligence, curiosity and imagination. Books nurture learning and inner imagination, while play in nature engages the sense of curiosity and exploration critical to healthy brain development. Putting both of these essential childhood experiences in one place is a simple idea, but one that could have profound effects on whole neighborhoods”. — Richard Louv, co-founder of Children & Nature Network and best-selling author of Last Child in the Woods

A portion of the two acre parcel for the new Felton Library will offer opportunities for young children to connect with nature. Felton Library Friends will be seeking public input on these and other possibilities.

Selected resources related to these and other potential projects for the property are listed below (and more will be added as FLF continues to explore possibilities).
