Hidden Gems: Destination Discovery at Anderson Branch Library

Destination Discovery, Cincinnati Public Library Anderson branch’s new children’s area in the library, is a welcome addition to an already great library.

The area features a refreshed space for families, and adds a new teen area with open seating, improved meeting rooms, a reading area with fireplace, and a spectacular STEM children’s area. From babies to teens, Destination Discovery’s brand new rotatable sofas, play house, car climber and interactive train features keep the kiddos engaged in reading experiences.

Train lovers will delight in the carpeted train tracks that invite imaginative play. Ignite STEM senses with interactive piston movement and descriptive visuals of a locomotive engine.

Babies and toddlers can engage in board books and creative play in the newly designed space. Kids can put on a puppet show in a wooden playhouse, engage with stimulating activity boards and puzzles, and page through picture books in the extensive children’s library.

Several computers line the walls of Destination Discovery, with ABC Mouse provided free of charge. Kids can also join in on one of the many Checkout Challenges the library offers, with fun prizes for completing the reading challenges.
