about Wayzata Library:
The library, part of the Hennepin County Library system, features a colorful Children's Room, where Go to Your Room - a vibrant abstract painting framed by toys and everyday objects - welcomes visitors. The Early Literacy Area has bins of picture books, puppets, puzzles, and toys, as well as child-sized tables, chairs, and lounge seating. Birth-to-Six, KidLinks, and TeenLinks web pages are available on computers, and teens can congregate in their own "room with a view," a separate space with books, computers, and a display wall.
From May through October, visitors can walk out the door of the Children's Room to discover the wonders of the Wayzata Library Children's Garden. There, they can cross the troll bridge, sit on a sculpted book bench, wander behind the secret garden walls, watch butterflies flutter, and pair a good book with a picnic lunch. Special garden events are offered in addition to the library's storytimes, workshops, and teen and family programming. Kids and parents can also enjoy a scenic ride on the Wayzata Trolley, which stops at the library and runs May through October.
