          The staff of the children’s department would like to thank all the people, organizations, and businesses who helped make our summer a success: The Friends of the West Lafayette Public Library, Nick Schenkel, Columbia Park Zoo Mobile staff, Lafayette Symphony Orchestra, Melissa Gallant, Leah Thompson, Laverne Mikhail, Kim Fields, Applebee’s, Arni’s Pizza, Arrowhead Bowl, Cold Stone Creamery, Insomnia Cookies, Malone’s Gymnastics, McDonald’s, Penguin Random House Publishing Company, Subway, West Lafayette Parks and Recreation, and all the teen volunteers who registered children and gave them prizes in the children’s department.

Thanks! You were wonderful!

We would not be able to have such high quality programs without help from these people and organizations.
