Kid Constructed Sidewalk

Take a walk on up to Cone Park Branch, along our brand new sidewalk. This new addition was made possible by the teamwork of the Library District’s Facilities staff and neighborhood children. 

Branch Manager Diane Johnson came up with this sidewalk solution to maintain the beauty of this facility and reduce the amount of mud tracked into the library especially on rainy days as people walked across the lawn to enter. She also wanted to involve the kids to create a sense of ownership and pride in their library.

The kids and the Facilities staff enjoyed building the walkway. The project was a big success.

Cone Park Branch is proud to be part of the Fred Cone Park Complex and winner of the 2014 City Beautification Award for its design adaptation that compliments its surroundings.
